Opening new accounts without my authorization
I opened an account with fingerhut about 5 months ago to establish credit. After I looked at the items they offered I decided not to order anything. Everything was out dated and over priced. I just got a notification on my credit report that the account was closed due to inactivity, which is fine. Immediately afterthey closed my previous account, they opened a new account in my name and put another inquiry on my credit report for an account I never authorized or asked for. I’m trying to build my credit up and they are ruining it. Dropped my score 20 points all at once.
They do not help build credit they RUIN it.
Good luck trying to contact them once the phone you’ll be on hold until they close.
