At A Glance

This Alert Affects:
Anyone who had a Fingerhut Fetti credit account opened on their behalf when the company switched financing partners in March 2022.
What’s Going On?
Customers are complaining that their credit was affected when Fingerhut opened new credit accounts on their behalf due to a change in financing partners. Now, attorneys working with ClassAction.org are investigating whether Fingerhut was authorized to open the accounts and are looking to pursue a mass arbitration on behalf of affected customers.
What Am I Signing Up For, Exactly?
You’re signing up for what’s known as “mass arbitration,” which involves hundreds or thousands of consumers bringing individual arbitration claims against the same company at the same time and over the same issue. This is different from class action litigation and takes place outside of court.
Does This Cost Anything?
It costs nothing to sign up, and the attorneys will only get paid if they win your claim.
How Much Could I Get?
While there are no guarantees, companies that violate the Fair Credit Reporting Act may owe affected consumers between $100 and $1,000 per violation.
