Has anyone ever leased something from AARON'S and gotten behind on their payments and been threatened with jail by this company? Is that legal?

Never rented anything from them. Not sure if that is illegal or just unprofessional. That's not a good way to get repeat customers. And just cuz u r behind now doesn't mean that it would continue. U might be having hard times right now. U might get caught up and intend on tenting something in the future. Not sure how they r contacting u. If it's by phone and u have caller ID, don't answer. If u do answer, record the phone call. I don't know if u could get them for harassment. U can't if it is how normal businesses would try collections, but if it's everyday, several times of day and u have proof, u might be able to do so. U could contact your local police department and they could answer your questions better and also tell u what u can do.

I do know one thing they are very unprofessional, My neighboors mother had passed on and she was leasing from them, "They knew the situation but was 5 hours late, making her daughter sit and wait for them after all they had already been through. they suck.

I have the perfect answer for you. You could call them and ask if they would come and get the items because you can't afford it right now or you could just pay your damn bill!!! Its that simple! If you don't pay for the items and you are still using them then it is stealing and they have every right to fill charges on you and jail time could be included.

Well, lucky you that you have never gotten behind on anything ever in your life! Lucky you that you have NEVER seen hard times! Lucky you that life is so perfect for you, but unfortunately in the REAL world we can't all be that perfect! Enjoy your perfect little world and if all you can do is put someone down and cuss at them and call them a thief...keep your snide little comments to yourself. How bout that???? This person wasn't asking for your rude remarks. If they have paid a bunch on the item and is just a little behind, I'm sure they don't want to lose what they have paid and most likely just need a little time to catch back up. Aaron's and places Ike that charge 3 times what things are worth anyway. They are crooks and you are a fool. Have a nice night in your perfect little hateful world.:)

It is illegal to do that. Next time they call be nice, record it if you can, and ask for their name so that you can call them back. Take it to a lawyer and sue the f--- out of them!

If you did not commit fraud you do not go to jail for a civil matter and owing money is a civil matter(unless you fail to pay a court order and then its contempt of court ie child support). I am pretty sure threatening to have you put in jail is illegal. Check out this link. Informed people are the best armed to defend themselves (google is your friend). And you should have them pick the stuff up because its the right thing to do why let it get worse.(Star power see how you can make a point without being a jerk) http://www.makethempayyou.org/

I do know it's hard to get by, I've had hard times myself.But if you keep the right mindset about money, you can pull thru. Many people think money is for FUN! It's to be spent, spent, spent.It is for BILLS and maintaining your present and building a Future. How many people do you know that are broke, owe everybody, but what do they do when their income tax refund comes in?? They can't blow it quick enough! If my comments make you angry, I know you're a person like I just described. How come so many people lack common sense when it comes to managing their money? And it seems like people that draw their government checks are the worst offenders.

Well, here it is! I'm a cancer patient, just lost my mother ( which is why I got behind ) funeral expenses HAD to come first, single father, and between the chemo and radiation and hospital stays I don't feel much like BLOWING any money. I do receive disability right now because of the Cancer which means I get NO income tax check, so maybe before you judge me... You should walk in my shoes! Actually no, I wouldn't wish that on you. I do pay my bills but I did get behind due to circumstances beyond my control, but I will get straightened back out. I was only asking for advice, not judgements, criticism or even for a handout for that matter. Sorry people like me disgust you so bad. I don't lack common sense when it comes to money or anything else, I have always taken care of myself and my children even thru this horrible disease, but things do come up and there is nothing I can do about that. Thank you for attempting to make me feel worse than I already do and just remember.... Something could always happen to you to make your life go crazy for a bit. I hope you have a great day.

I am sorry for your hard times u r having. That is why I responded the way I did, due to not knowing your circumstances. And why I mentioned u could be in hard times, get back on track, and guessing they might not have repeat customers due to harassment. Hopefully some of the other advice of the ones trying to help u can work and I hope u do sue them. I know some people r going to still judge u, cuz there r still idiots out there, just don't listen.

I wasn't talking about people with special circumstances or even you in particular, tho it probably sounded that way.It was an observation about a segment of the population, not everyone on hard times.I worry about cancer like most everyone else,and have health problems of my own I'm going to have to deal with and pay for. I don't wish anyone harm, and wish you well.

It's ok. Don't worry about it. I just wanted everyone to understand I am not a deadbeat just looking to scam someone. I am a good person that just had the world crash down on me. I will get back on my feet tho, and all will be fine. I just have to get thru some things first. Cancer is the worst thing I have ever went thru and then losing my mother in the middle of it has almost been more than I can bear. Thank you for your concern. It is very appreciated.

You are wrong. If you are renting, then pay. But no, you will not go to jail and they can not threaten you with it. That is not legal. Know your facts.

I am so sorry for what you're going through and I understand your predicament. My mother was in a house fire two days after I had a complete hysterectomy to avoid cancer. She had 3rd degree burns over 35% of her body to the muscle and bone. She survived 4 1/2 months and 14 surgeries. None of this was her fault as she was provided a faulty heater by the home owner. Two days after I quit my job to care for she suddenly passed and I was responsible for everything~we've been a month behind on several things since then, but I called and explained the situation and was fortunate they worked with us. Those rental places take advantage of people and charge ridiculous interest rates hoping you'll get behind so they can
repo and resale for a jacked up "lower rate". If you can document what's happened with yourself and record their calls. When you send A pymt if you can send a few extra bucks and tell them to apply it to your past balance. That way if you have to go to court (civil) you have proof of your story and their being unprofessional. A few extra dollars with your pymt towards past balance shows good faith and intent and a judge will see that. The company will look like crap. Good luck to you and GOD bless you~hope things turn around for you soon...I feel your pain and emotional heartache....

If they charge 3 times as much as what the item is worth, why are you buying it? They are not the idiots sir, you are!!! LOL Shop around before you buy and you won't have to worry. By the way, I gave two options! The other is call them and have them pick it up. One less bill and one less headache. In my own "perfect" world, I buy what I can afford and I never live above my means!!

They are not renting if they are not paying. That is called freeloading and in business it is the same as stealing. And why are people on here so stuck on correct spelling and grammar? Nobody on here are college professors!!!
