Why does lease and go take your info and run?

So I make a decent (more than comfortable amount) of money not a huge amount but no debt either. After about 2 weeks of trying to get ahold of whynotleaseit, I am done who can I forward the below info to, it needs to be seen and re-evaluated by corporate before calling them a partner and undersigning your own name/brand. Below is an email with sensitive data stripped from it.

I applied for an account at my local kmart and got denied and am curious to why. I have an account with aarons that is in good standing, an account with rent-a-center that is in good standing, and an account with fingerhut that is in good standing. I also have all utility bills in good standing and have never been late on rent. I make about $1600-$2000/mo depending on the month and $1600 is the low end. I also all bills paid walk away with $200-600 a month of extra cash that is even after taxes, stock, savings, and 401k/IRA. So please reconsider as I am baffled I got rejected l. It is very embarrassing for some one that does well like me financially.

Hello Joseph,

What is the last 4 of your social?



Checking on the status of my application you asked for my social last 4 digits. They are ****.

Below is a full transcript of a chat I had with Chris who stopped speaking after noting down my last four digits of social security number and disappearing.(This may be reported) Please give clear response as to why I was declined and a plan of action to remedy the situation.

this conversation went on for coming up to 2 weeks. Yet still no response not even an explanation to why he asked for the last of my social and disappeared.I checked the email headers and they are from whynotleaseit
