I was online looking for rent to own homes. A company called back asking if I wanted to do rent to own homes. I said yes, and the lady I was on the phone with said first step is credit repair then I’d be connected to someone in the RTO department. I set up an account and at the end when I asked about the homes again she said someone from that department would call me. About a month later I spoke with someone else from the company because I sent emails asking about the homes and she said that they have nothing to do with RTO homes and that the RTO homes are a scam.
