Aaron's Sales and Leasing Palm Springs, FL Complaint - Fraud and Bullying Wont Work in the End
PALM SPRINDS, FLORIDA -- While I have never leased through Aaron's, my former wife has. She had listed me as a reference and when she inevitably fell behind in her payments, they contacted me. I did agree to make a one time payment of just short of $200.00 using my Visa card.
I was asked at the time of the payment to come into the store and sign an authorization for credit card debit and credit. I declined to come in and do so and reiterated, this is for a one time payment only. Well, guess what happened...? Two months later there were two more payments run through 3 days apart. When I contacted SCOTT, at the Palm Springs, FL. location, and advised him to refund the charges, I was told NO.
I educated him to the terms Wire Fraud, Bank Fraud, Misrepresentation and Extortion he suggested I come into the store and we will settle it like "REAL MEN." He then did agree he did in fact run the charges through without authorization but the only way it could be reversed is to sign an agreement. Of course, I declined. I contacted the local authorities (Palm Beach Sheriff's Office and Palm Springs Police Department). I have signed the papers to have charges levied via the State's Attorney's office.
Much to my surprise, yesterday, I had another 200.00 charged to my card. I immediately contacted Scott at Aaron's and he informed me that since I am a "THIEF" and have his furniture, he will continue to charge my card and then he hung up the phone. (For the record, I have divorced for 9 years and haven't lived with her since that time.) I might mention one thing, while I was speaking with Scott at Aaron's, I was in the police station on speakerphone with an officer present.
I closed my credit card and another has been issued. Incidentally, all of the charges have been refunded to me. Yes, I have spoken with my former wife and she will be more vigilant with her creditors. As for Scott, well, his name is listed on every "DO NOT HIRE" site within Palm Beach County as I am a Charter Member of several Chambers of Commerce. I should think it a long time indeed an unskilled laborer such as Scott, to be able to find gainful employment!
