Proposed Consent Agreement In the Matter of Showplace, Inc., also doing business as Showplace Rent-to-Own and Showplace Lease/Purchase, FTC File No. 1123151

I think this is a perfect example of government going too far. I wish you government people would stop sticking your nose into my business. I just went to rent another computer from my local rental store and they now want me to pay more weekly than I did in the past. When I asked them why, they said they are no longer allowed to install anti-theft software because of the FTC. I said ‘you have my permission’ but they tell me they still can’t. They say the owner has to increase cost to cover the computers that people do not return and he cannot track. Is this true???
