Hummm that might stop some of the free loaders that plan to move every 6 months by not paying their rent and costing the landlord a small fortune to get them evicted.They move in,pay a month or two then free ride for 3 plus months for the court system to finally get them out.Then they do a fortune in damage while being evicted...
Shouldnt be jailed but should be put out after 30 days if they arent paying.

How would they do this without using identity theft/fraud?


If the landlord is stupid enough to not request their social security numbers and/or do a background check, I can't really feel too bad for him.


All it takes is for someone to do this ONCE, fail to pay a landlord, and they'll be unable to live nearly anywhere under the same social.

I searched GLP and didn't see any threads on this....this is absurd....if you haven't paid your rent after a 10 day notice, the landlord can hit you with a MISDEMEANOR, put in you in jail-it is now CRIMINAL to be delinquient on your rent-but note, there is no laws protecting the tenants from scumlords who don't manage/fix/maintain properties.

WTF is happening???

Re: You can now be thrown in jail in ARKANSAS for being late on your rent!
I refuse to give landlords my SS#. With all the identity fraud, I give that to NO ONE. I tell them to confirm my employment status and pay with my employer, check with my previous landlords to prove I pay every month on time and call my bff who is a circuit judge for a character reference.

One of my landlords was pissed I wouldn't give them the SS# and said they wouldn't consider me for the property without it. I said fine, I'll give you mine if you give me yours. After all, plenty of people pay their rent on time and wind up on the street because the landlord is uncredit-worthy and loses the house to foreclosure. So if we do a mutual check on each other, I'm good with giving that to you. She laughed and told me I got the place.

And seriously, oldest trick in the book. I watched my parents lose every security deposit they ever paid to scumbag landlords that would refuse to give it back to them even though the place was left in great condition. I have never lost a security deposit, because I don't pay my last month's rent. I tell them to apply the deposit and I leave the house in rent-ready condition. I even have the carpet cleaned! They aren't happy about it, but as there's no damage to sue me over, there's nothing they can do. I've gotten away with it 4 times now.

As for this thing in Arkansas, yeah, once you get an order to vacate, gtfo or you will go to jail! I like it!

I only do damage if the landlord is a dick, usually having to do with repairs, and the damage deposit..

So smartin up landlords, you may have the law but we're occupying your property...

If a renter tears up my property, they end up with 4 cut tires on their vehicle when I find them. Karma is a bitch. 2 pounds of sugar in the gas tank works,too. Fuck with me, I fuck with you. Simple.

You know what, people should just pack up all of their shit, use all their cash and buy hunting items, items to survive and start new societies, and just leave their jobs, their homes, their bills, and go into remote areas and start their own communities away from government, away from the garbage laws, garbage debt, abuse, taxes, bills, etc.

Obviously the system is broken beyond repair, so people should just begin abandoning it completely. Just say fuck it and call it a day. Humanity didnt need all of this shit thousands of years ago that they put up now, and our ancestors were a lot dumber, so we'd all do hell of a lot better.

You cant really keep a system, or enforce a system, if there arent many people supporting it, so its easy to make it crumble and go away.

Good for Arkansas. Cannot tell you how many renters we've had that have stopped paying. It's damn near impossible to find Good renters. You know, ones that pay on time every time. The rest refuse to pay, even when they have the money, and just hop from rental to rental, destroying your property because they don't give a fuck.

They would rather water leaking from underneath a bathroom faucet cause you 2,500 dollars in water damage, than fix it themselves, or fucking call you to have it fixed, because you might ask for some fucking rent. (true story)

Then they'll cry about you being a slum lord, as though you fucking OWE them a home. Seriously want to burn my rentals to the ground half the time simply because renters suck. They are generally nasty, self-centered, inconsiderate, freeloaders.

People that own their homes, know what it takes to upkeep one. Renters on the other hand........

Seriously. Millions fled England because of debtor's jail. Looks like its making a comeback-just in time to take the guns away.....
 Quoting: taketheredpill


Debtors jail was revived in 1996 when Bill Clinton signed the 'War on Fathers' legislation to put deadbeats into jail.

Problem is, most deadbeats would work if the system was not 99% to the woman, so the system creates them by denying every penny a man makes. Forget anything nice.. just to survive. By not caring whether a non-custodial father can survive or not (rent, electric, car, food) the system has forced many into deadbeat status.

Anyone not living in the 40-year-ago past will see that is what happens these days.

So 'Debtors Prison' returned only 17 years ago. Now it will be expanded for those who can not pay rent...


And the feminist defenders will chime in...

They are going to be kicked out for nonpayment of rent. But if they could afford a new place, they would have paid rent on the old one.

So rather than making them homeless, they stay as guests of the state. 3 hots and a cot!
