RAC-Rent A Centertallmadge avenue akron, Ohio United States of America
I have been a customer of rent a center for over 8 years. I have rented and paid in full many many items and 9 times out of ten I was on time with my payments. over the course of the past year I had some issues and was in the hospital alot. at first I talked to them about this and I thought i had a good enough repor with them over such a long period of time, I assumed that if i was honest with them they would give me some kind of break. WRONG!!!!!! at first it seemed like they did try and work with me but as time went on they got nastier and nastier. I did not elude and evade them and if im in the hospital and not at home i cant very well let them in the house to retrieve the property. so over the course of two months or so i paid them what i could and one day i borrowed 300.00 from a friend and left them a money order along with about a hundred other people under their front door. I had done this many times before and had no issues so i thought nothing of it. I assumed that everything was fine didnt hear from them for almost a week. then as if someone pushed their psycho button they started coming to the house leaving hundreds of those d**n things on the door. my 12 year old daughter was there alone and she said they would bang on both doors beat on all the windows and blow the phone up even after being told i wasnt there and that i was in the hospital. Finally i talked to them and they said that never received a payment from me. ok so if that is true why would you wait an entire week?? really get serious. people think because you have no money or bad credit that you are stupid. i am not retarded i know if i left a money order there. So i called western union and had them do the trace thing and you have to wait for them to give you your money back. you dont just call them and magically they pop your money back into your hand. so again i was harassed by phone and by door day and night. and yes at this point i refused to talk to them because as far as i was concerned i made my payment and i showed them the receipt so they could have waited and i would have given them another one as soon as i got my money back from the money order place. ok so now one day i am at home just got out of the hospital im in bed i have two babies under the age of two who are napping and there is someone banging on the door. i ignore it....lmao about 5 minutes later i hear a man yelling akron police is anybody here? so i get out of bed go to the living room and lone behold it is the police with rent a center and some lady shoving a bunch of papers into my hands stating that they have a court order to take whatever is theirs. the officer checks my entire house to see if anybody is lurking in the shadows to shank him...lol and im just as nice and polite as i could be. i empty the fridge and they take it and their living room set and the officer and i had a nice little chat while they were doing this. then the dumb broad that was with them says to me good luck. now why in the hell would you say something stupid like that?? well the joke is on all of them. i got my tax refund a few days later bought a fridge and some brand new nice furniture for half the price of their used bullshit that they dont clean and rent over and over at full price. so they can kiss my lilly white butt!!!! The point i am trying to make is this..dont ever get sick or lose your job because they dont care about you at this point. i dont care if youve given them 10,000 dollars in the past they will turn on you like a rabid dog. I just hope doing stuff like that to people helps them sleep better at night
