Fingerhut - fraud

review #146252

my name is joann simmons, i recieved a catalog that said on the front of the book 'you have been pre-approved to recieve up to 400.00 in credit.

i called to make an order, the man said i had to give my social sec.# and birthday so i did.

he then said that i wasn't approved. whats wrong with this picture. when your pre-approved that means your approved for the amount stated on the catalog, am i right or wrong. to me this is fraud.i would like to make a complaint against the company.

this is false advertizement. this is wrong for the company to do this.

any remarks to my complaint you can reach me at grandmalovesyou_62@yahoo.com

thanks for nothing.joann simmons

fingerhut is a company that uses spam as an advertising tool. Any company that does that is unethical, criminal and cannot be trusted. Typically an identity theft scam.

100% of all companies that send spam are scams. fingerhut is no exception.

What you are claiming is not fraud. You were pre-approved, NOT approved. They probably have bad business practices but it is not a crime let alone fraud.
