I applied for merchandise at Aarons (Colerain, OH). The application asks for 3 references. I provided my mom, sister, and a good friend.
A rep at Aarons called my sister and asked her if I paid my bills on time. My sister replied, I assume so, but I dont live with her, so it is nothing she could confirm or deny.
The rep said to her, that she should know if I am credit worthy or not cause she is my sister.
This is a disturbing reference call. Do I really want to do business with them? Since when was this type of questioning considered a reference?
