i financed some items using RAC and would have to admit i fell on hard times due to my fiance being laid off from work in addition to having a baby. I made a lump sum payment and wasnt able to make any additional payments immediately after.

My mom called me and advised that the district manager has been leaving my personal account informaton on her voicemail in regards to me being past due on my account and having to file criminal charges on me for theft.

Now that my be something that they can do in regards to the account falling past due, but I am very sure that they violated FDCPA guidelines by even releasing the information that my account was past due to an unauthorized party as well as leaving it on her voicemail. Cant wait to see how the company reacts now that the shoe is on the other foot.

Good luck wasting your time. People like you give places like this a bad name.

If you just paid your bills, none of this would be happening.

BTW, this does not violate FDCPA laws. YOU signed an application giving this company permision to contact and or release your information about any past due status.

As per 3rd party release of information, references are not eleigable to obtain or be given information on an account, unless authorization has been provided from the account holder. That being said, if the contact number given for the account holder is not their direct telephone number, it was the liability and neglect of the account holder that lead to the third party release of information. So in this case it would depend on what info was obtained and how well the account was noted during the contacrs made with the account holder.

It doesn't matter what you sign. FDCPA is the law and it over rules that.

Everyone should sue this company. They violate ever rule possible. Stuff happens in life and sometimes bill don't get paid.

No company gets immunity from debt collection laws because of paperwork. YOUR WRONG

It is not against any privacy laws to tell someone you are past due on your account, you really cant discuss much else besides that RAC is trying to get intouch with you for a past due account. You put down 3-4 references which will all be called if you fail to make payment on your merchandise. Dont create bills you cant afford to keep, always think about the future and all possible circumstances.

Hello,

It is AGAINST the LAW to discuss detailed information with a third party contact. If she was late with payments, the court system is there for legal recourse for non-payment!

I am a former employee of RAC, I do understand all your complaints and I totally agree with each and everyone of you. I propose that we all get together and file a class action lawsuit.

If anyone is interested please email me at amehampton@yahoo.com. Former or current customer and any former employee are welcome!

Did you put your mother down as an emergency contact? If they called her she would be able to figure out what the deal was without being told.

That is just like the title loan places, they ask for an emergency contact number and if you miss a payment they call the contact person. I have a daughter and son-in-law who do that and I finally told my daughter to quit putting me down for emergency contact, I don't have any people calling me about bills of my own, and I don't need to be called about other peoples. I don't know what the rules are, but I don't think they will file criminal charges against you, they are more apt to repo the stuff you are renting from them.

Let's face it you didn't buy it, until it is completely paid off, you are renting it and paying big time interest. Tell them to come and get their stuff.
