IT IS A SCAM! DON'T ORDER ANYTHING FROM THIS UNSCRUPULOUS COMPANY!

THEY ARE DISHONEST JUST LIKE THEIR COMPETITORS "SWEEPSTAKES CLEARINGHOUSE" WHO WENT OUT OF BUSINESS WITHOUT TELLING ANYBODY AND RIPPED SUCKERS OFF OF ALOT OF MONEY FOR MERCHANDISE NEVER SENT AND MERCHANDISE THAT WAS OF VERY POOR QUALITY THAT WAS A RIPOFF. PLEASE, DON'T LET THESE SHYSTERS RIP YOU OFF! DON'T ORDER FROM THEM, IT IS A GYP!

Charged for items never shipped

It's been a month, and i have not received products that was ordered on October 29th 2021. Fingerhut put on wrong mailing address label. Representative told me to go knock on neighbors doors to see if they have my package. WHAT THE *** I am still being charged $9.71. They would rather mess up my credit for 9 dollars than to fix their mistake. I have complained, phoned, and emailed three times a week with no refund applied. I should not be charged for their mistake.

User's recommendation: It's not worth it.

Dissapointed

I had an account opened with a credit limit of $700.00 I was waiting for Xmas to place an order and, just last week when I went to start placing my order, I was made aware that my account had been closed. I received no notice whatsoever to the closing. When I called, i was denied to a request to reopen my account. I was forced to reapply for credit. What I discovered was that my credit went down for the closing and my credit went down from me having to reapply. My new credit is now only $500.00 and they refused to increase me to where I was before they closed my account. SHADY SHADY. Not happy with Fingerhut

User's recommendation: Don't apply for credit here.

Your commercial

I find it very disturbing that your commercial with a woman using two Chihuahuas for dumbbells that look scared as *** is any way of promoting any product.Shame on you !!!!

Fraud transactions and fraud account open

Update by user Sep 30, 2021

They sent a letter after I sent them the official Federal Trade commission report and they still didn’t do anything.

Original review posted by user Sep 30, 2021
Had an account with Web Bank the issuers of Fingerhut accounts. Noticed several fraud charges and account being opened in my name that was not mine so I contacted the FTC my identity had been stolen and I thought maybe this would take care of the issue. Uhm No sent a letter to Fingerhut and they replied saying that I had been paying on the account I had and I was responsible for the amount due on this one. Naw I called the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau they will handle it.

User's recommendation: Watch them fools.

Ak and HI shipping is so unpredictable

I ordered a freaking welder. And shipped to my house in Alaska no problem. But literally any and all other things I've ever tried to order can't ship due to legal restrictions. Right so a jacket is harder to ship than a 20 pound welder? Makes no sense. Do not recommend if you don't live in the lower 48.

User's recommendation: Don't use if you live in Alaska or hawaii.

Woman dancing behind a push lawnmower

What this woman is doing in this commercial shows no thought at all about safety. I can promise you it says nothing about dancing while using said product. Holding the handle firmly in order to be in control of any unexpected movement the mower might make. Many years ago this happened to my sister-n-law and she lost half of her foot. Safety should always be presented as job 1 in any of your products. But this woman dancing is nothing but gross negligence on your part. Just hope someone doesnt get see thh

Will not mail return labels

I received duplicate orders from Fingerhut. I do not own a printer so I have tried to contact them by phone and email for them to mail me return labels. They have so far refused to do so. Now my balance is up to where I can't pay it on my fixed income. But I WILL refuse to pay it until a representative answer the phone! Credit be damned!

Fingerhut - Company never removed themselves from my credit report
Update by user Aug 17, 2021

I called August 12, 2021 that’s why I couldn’t get a new account with them because they never remove the old account that was paid for and they never followed up to make sure I got the product in 2017 and when I complain to them about it they never reached back out...
