We always make our weekly Rent A Center payments online. This past week they changed our payments to monthly instead of weekly as our contract states. My husband is on disability and I am unemployed and we can not pay a month at a time.

They called my friends and family and told them we were late on our payment. I sent them a letter telling them not to contact my friends and family as it is illegal for them to tell anyone except my spouse about my loan. After they have been notified in writing not to call, it is illegal for them to call. They have continued to call my family and friends even though they have received my letter.

They harassed my Mother about our payment and got her very upset. She also told them not to call her again. I told them I can not make my payment until they change the payments back to weekly as the contract states. You can not change the payment amount after Rent A Center has changed it online.
