Aaron’s to pay $28 Million in settlement over Customer privacy violations

The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES —

The California attorney general has announced a $28 million settlement with a furniture and computer rental business that allegedly violated consumer protection and privacy laws.

Kamala Harris said Monday that Aaron’s Inc. overcharged customers, omitted important contract disclosures and installed software that could spy on laptop computer users.

The Atlanta-based business is the nation’s second-largest rent-to-own business. It operates approximately 75 stores in California.

Harris says about 100,000 customers are eligible for $25 million in refunds for leases signed over the past four years. The company also will pay $3.4 million in civil penalties and fees.

A spokeswoman says the company admitted no wrongdoing or liability and was committed to following the law.

Aaron’s last year settled a case with the Federal Trade Commission over spyware installed on computers.

this is his follow up single to “Hot Nxgga”, which is actually a freestyle over another beat already used by Lloyd Banks of G-Unit.  I’m not feeling it at all, but I could be a minority (it’s happened before).

I'm only interested in the best you have to offer
