I live in Pa. I rented furniture from Premier Rentals. My last payment was 12/20/06. I could no longer afford payments. They called and came to collect a few times. I called them and left a message that they could come on 3/12/07 at 3:00 p.m. to pick up the things. He came picked up the things and told me that they had filed theft charges on 3/07/07 and there was nothing I could do because it was out of their hands and I owed them back payments. On 4/13/07 I received a letter from the magistrate it was a summons for a criminal case of theft of movable property and theft of leased property. The hearing was held 5/18/07. The magistrate gave me until 7/3/07 to pay back payments which I know I owe. If I don't pay then I have to go to court on theft charges and face jail. I would like some advice. Pa. has a Rental Purchase agreement act. If i am reading this correctly RTO is a creditor and has to go by debt collection trade practices.
