RENT-A-CENTER Lied to police to get my brother wrongfully arrested. 530 W MAIN ST Oklahoma
My brother got a laptop computer from Rent a center and was paying on it and the laptop ended up getting stolen.
He paid what he could on the laptop even though he didn't have it anymore until he fell behind on his payment agreement. Rent a center ended up sending their employees to his work to harrasing him about the laptop and also to my home to try and get the laptop which he didn't have any longer. At my home he informed them that he didn't have it and ask them to leave the property. A few days later he was informed that they had filed charges against him claiming that he threatened to shot them if they did not leave the property and since there were two of them and one of him the city has taken their word against his.
A warrent was issued for his arrest and he was later put in jail after a traffic stop. I have read other rip off reports discribing simular action in other cases. The state of Oklahoma doesn't believe that this was a way for Rent a Center to get back at my brother for not paying on the laptop. I know he may do stupid things, but I doubt he would actually shot anyone. I don't even believe that he actually said that. I am not saying that he doesn't owe the money, but should he be fausly accuse of something that isn't true so someone can get back at him?
I heard about other cases where rent a center was being sued for doing this in other states.
