Complaint / review text:
I rented a TV from Aaron. One day, while my mom went to make the payment, someone broke in the house and stole the TV. My mom called the police and informed Aaron that the TV had been stolen. They did not care, expected me to return the TV if i didn't pay for it. I told them how can I return something that was stolen. They said it wasn't their problem, I needed to to take care of the situation. They called my work screaming and yelling at me, calling me names. They called my mom and yelled at her.
Finally, I told my boss to say I quit because they wouldn't stop calling. About a year later, they had me arrested for failure to return a leased item. I told my lawyer and the DA how can I return something that is stolen. I provided them the proof, but they said it was to late and that it should never have come there that it was a civil matter. But because it was there, they had no choice but to prosecute me for it but that they would drop it to petty theft with 12 months probation and that I would have to pay $1500.00 to Aaron for the TV. Now, I have a theft record which isn't right because I didn't steal it.
This was very humiliating for me because I'm not a thief. They almost caused me to lose my job. They called my family and harrassed them. There needs to be a class action suit drawn up on these people so that everyone who has been embarrassed and humiliated, can at least get something for their experience with Aaron.
