Aaron's Stalks Woman Over a Leased Rug, Oregon Complaint Alleges

By Michael Fuller, Portland Trial Attorney

According to a federal court complaint, Aaron's intimidates an Oregon woman by repeatedly stalking her, in what started as a simple dispute over a leased rug.

Aaron's rents and sells residential goods and appliances at its company-owned and franchise stores.

An Oregon woman claims Aaron's employees repeatedly stalk her at her home, call her at work, and harass her family over personal property the company is not legally entitled to collect.


According to the complaint, a federal bankruptcy judge has ordered a stop to all collections from the consumer. A police report was filed with local authorities when Aaron's allegedly refused to abide by the court order.
