Aarons in my opinion is a TOTAL ripoff! I own 4 acres so I needed a new mower, went to aarons to get one, all was fine except the harrassing phone calls at work for being 1-2 days late when I had already made arrangements with the management on payments for the times I get paid (2x's a month), they sent people to my home unannounced to harrass me or to try to pick up the mower that I WAS paying on.
Well boyfriend lost his job and I was having medical problems, talked to aarons manager and made things right, we decided to get a different mower(smaller one) so the payments would be lower, yeah right! I was given a smaller mower, but it was NOT a new one like I had the first contract, they took it upon themselves to give me a USED smaller mower that someone else had used, brought back dirty with half a tank of gas in it. The USED smaller mower never worked right, all the steering and wheels were loose on it, but I kept paying on it.
I did get 2 months behind again with medical things still going on so they made arrangements to come pick up the mower, fine but they did NOT showup, instead they came while I was at work, NO phone call, NOTHING, took the mower. I told them I was NOT paying for a smaller USED mower at the same rate as I had on the NEW bigger mower, so they could just keep the smaller mower too.
Well now it several MONTHS later, no calls from them, no mail contact, when all a sudden I get COURT papers saying that they WILL garnish my wages for the amount of $1643.00! WHAT? For a mower that was NOT worth that much? I did not receive anything by mail OR any calls warning me about a pending lawsuit against me with Aarons and IF I am going to have to fork over that much money, I AM getting a mower to show for it! STAY AWAY FROM AARONS...THEY ARE RUDE, LIARS AND HARRASSERS!
