I will start by saying I had been a Rent a Center customer for roughly 10 years before any of this heppened.  And had paid off many things.  I had to start traveling for work so I thought I would furnish my travel trailer with a Computer, TV, And PS3.  I asked them if it was ok if I was to do that.  They said it was fine (because I was a long time customer).  For about a year everything was going fine until while working a 20hr shift my trailer was broken into.  A police report was filed, and plent of pictures were taken.  I informed them of the problem, and they told me I had to just keep paying.  I asked them if the insurance (i was paying extra for) would cover it.  They said no.  My trailer insurance would not cover it either.  So for 6 more months I kept paying for the items until I lost my job and simply could not afford to pay them.  So I start getting the usual harrassment.  Then one day I get a knock on my door and it is our local RAC employee saying that if I could pay 1100.00 we could settle this issue.  I told him it is unlikely but I will try my best.  It did not happen and a month later I get a summons, and they are suing me for 5000 dollars!!  I could not make the court date due to me getting a new job and having to be out of state.  When they start garnishing my check I fill paperwork to get it lowered.  On that court date the freaking scumbag tells the judge that I stole from them and that it should not be lowered.  Then he tells the judge that I pawned the TV 150 miles from where I was.  I asked the employee if they checked with the pawn shop and got a name.  He said no.  I ASKED him if I could get the info and he said NO. So I cannot even go after the poeple that probably broke into my trailer.  I told the judge he is charging me with a whole new agreement and that I only had six months left.  But he said it was my fault for not making the original court date.  And I did agree.  My last garnishment came out today.  I paid 10000 dollars for something that should have cost me 5000 dollars for 24 months worth of payments.  I have all the proof and the original contracts and I plan on getting half my money back.
