Rent2Own-Deals / Product not delivered

1 362 Gulf Breeze Pkwy #219Gulf Breeze, FL, United States Review updated:
Contact information:

Company is leading consumers to believe that they would deliver electronic products for a small monthly rental fee. They ask for initial $25 fee for application and that is all they would do. Company would take initial fee and disappear. Their address is nonexistent.

    I as well fell to the same thing. I went throught the whole application process and now can't get into site or it dissappeared. What can I do, how can we take this fake site out and get our money back. Surely there is something we can do.

    I applied back in 5/29/2009 for an xbox elite for my son for his birthday. i am going to list everything from their site so you can see for your self how long it took for them to decline me. I did recive some e-mails from them after I kept asking what the status was on the order and explained that this was for my sons birthday and need less to say after two months and them supposly checking my employment twice they just declined my application on 7/29/2009. My son is heart broken because in one the e-mails they said that the xbox would be shipped soon. I have saved all the e-mails and am turning them over to the proper athourties their in Fla. here is the list of action taken by this scam company. I sugest that everyone call the better business beura in fla and give them the information. copy all the information from the web site. hopefully they can help all of us. I sent in everything they asked for and now not only did they take money from me they are useing my information in fraud. check your credit report and keep a close eye. this company is a real scam site. I will keep everyone informed if i get a new information

    I had a similar experience with them to what mommy5514. Went through their entire process to be declined. By law they are required to notify you in writing if they deny credit. The only acknowledgement was they updated the account status to declined on their website. I checked with my employer, they never performed the claimed employment check. I checked with my landlord, they never performed an address verification though sending me the app in the US mail instead of e-mail would've served that purpose at minimal cost. I pulled my credit report to discover there hadn't been an inquiry on it in years. In short, the application fee is accepted but the application is never processed other then changing status on the web site. Even after 45 days my bank accepted that as a valid reason (fraud) to charge back the fee and refund it to me.

    I recently applied for a PS3 with this company not knowing the dispicable reputation that they have. I recently received the application but after reading all the negative reviews and experiences that others have had, I will not continue with the application process and I will contact my credit card company to dispute the charge.
