Well….after reading all of the other Ripoff Scamss, I sure wish I had read them prior to doing business with them as it appears I have been a victim also. I had been a loyal customer totally on disability when I first purchased a computer. I was always early or on time with my payments. I made a few of my payments by credit card, and was told my card would never be charged unless I authorized it. nI saw the form and I specifically told them no I did not want automatic deductions as I am on a fixed income and Social Security is not legally to be garnished or froze or taken unless it is for IRS, Child Support or Alimony. Anyway, three of the months in the previous year if I was going to be a day late I would call them and tell them ahead of time that I was going to be in by a specific date. nThen I would receive a phone call prior to that date stating I broke a promise and didn’t call or come in as stated. Boy I got furious and finally said I am a person of my word and I am not at all healthy and don’t need this. So I told them to pick everything up. They were like oh I’m sorry whoever you talked to must have not wrote it down in the computer right. Then I said well don’t call me again I will be in when I say I will. nTwo days later I get a letter telling me they are calling in the lease and it is terminated. Well…I figured fine I am not going to go in tomorrow and make a payment as now I am really upset! So the following business day they call me and say now that is two promises you broke and I just let Jeff have it! I told him that I never made a promise to be in the first time and then I got a letter the day before signed by Tim the manager, saying that they were calling in the lease! nJeff said oh that was a mistake I was like you can have it back but not until I clean and reformat the machine. He was like wait wait wait what can we do to make it better and make you happy. I was like I don’t know I just want to turn everything back in and deal with some other company that won’t lie and call me and harrass me. nSo he said he would remove the calling and that if I couldnt make a payment always ask for him and he would take care of it. And that if Jeff wasn’t in to talk to Jason. Well I made another payment by credit card and specifically said you are not authorized to charge my card at any time. He said oh no we wouldn’t do that we can’t do that it is against the LAW!!! So I agreed. nWell in a nutshell the following month I got very ill and had to go to a hospital and I lost my apartment. When I got out I left the state and tried to get moved into somewhere new and get settled then I was going to contact them. I was only 5 days late at this point. Well then the harassing calls started again. nThen they started making threats. They threatened to take legal action if I didn’t call them by 5pm that night. My health was more important to me and this was really upsetting me so I figured with all of the hassles fine just do what you have to do with your legal action. nWell then they kept calling and calling and blocking their number but they would leave a message an it was always nasty and rude, where my family could play the message and hear. This is against the law! This is a privacy issue and is not supposed to be left on a message on an answering machine! nAnyway two days went by then three and I thought well any day I am going to get contacted with legal action. Couldn’t sleep or eat, didn’t know what to do….Then I get another phone call last week stating from Jeff that CONGRATULATIONS!!!! your account is getting charged off to stolen goods and you don’t have to do any paperwork but would I please call him. nAnyway, As stated above I am on SSDI and that is my only income and I have bill pay, and had my rent and utilities all set up to pay and was broke after buying my meds…..I get an email from my bank stating that my rent couldn’t get paid as I was NSF. I was like what I just got paid on Wedensday and now I am NSF and my rent isn’t getting paid. nSo I quickly look online on my account and there are two charges from Aaron’s to my debit card which my SSDI is direct deposited and they know this. They charged over $300 which is way more than I owed and I did not authorize this at all! So now they have threatned first to take legal action., the next week they threatned and said that they were charging it all off CONGRATULATIONS very smart &%$ and then this week they take my money which SSDI cannot be garnished nor froze. nI call the bank they say well I have to wait until Monday till the charges post to the account, even though the funds are being held and it was fraudulent. But can’ do anything till then, and that I can file a dispute but it may take 60 days to resolve that I would be better off contacting the source (Aarons) and resolving it with them. nSo now I have NSF Fee for bounced check for Rent. I will lose my house and have to live in my car all because of them doing this? How can that be legal how can they get away with this? It is illegal to write down my credit card information and keep it on file and the bank and debit card people agree. nIt is Illegal for them to call and harrass and talk about my account with friends and family that were listed as references, It is Illegal to threaten to do legal action and then not do it, only using this as a scare tactic (My health can’t take it) and then It is Illegal to threaten or leave a message saying it was being charged off Congratulations!!, and it is Illegal to take funds from my SSDI and to knowingly do all of this and get away with it! nI would advise never doing business with them nor ever ever give your credit/debit card to them as now what am I to do. Other than I am going to dispute it, and report it to the FTC, the BBB and wherever else I need to go if they do not refund my money immediately. I guess their whole idea of scare tactics works as now they have to get contacted by me one way or another.!! nHarassed in oregonnMcMinnville, OregonU.S.A.
