Fingerhut/ Nationwide Credit Inc. has been calling my family members and harassing them on the phone. Not just once, but several times. They have my address, but I 've never recieved anything from Fingerhut of an outstanding bill with them.

I did have statements from them stating that the order was paid in full. When I had order Items from them. But I having order anything from them for over 8 yrs. now. the last item was paid off in 2002-3. So I would like to know what bill are they talking about now.

When I talked to the man (Albin Ogdon), and asked for a statement from them. He gave me the mailing address to mail a payment. So I took down the address and his name.

And then I asked him again for them to send me a statement. And he then asked me about my income and how much I paid in bills. When I told him, that wasn't any of his business, he asked me when I could send in the first payment of either $300.00, $100.00, or $50.00's.

And I told him until he sends me a statement of the account I wasn't sending them anything. But he continue to ask me when I could send in payment. He said it had to be in a money order made out to Nationwide Credit Inc.

When I ask him about a check he said it had to be a money order. I am on full disablity and raising a special needs daughter, and as it is now. At times by the 3rd week of the month I am ou of money for us to eat or for her medical needs. And I get help thru my church, friends, and food pantries in the area I live in.

#1 UPDATE Employee

Nationwide is NOT Fingerhut

AUTHOR: Rangebird - (U.S.A.)

There are a couple of issues regarding this complaint that need to be addressed immediately.
1.) Nationwide Credit is NOT a company owned/operated by Fingerhut. It is an independant collections company.
2.) If you are receiving social security benefits for disability, and that is your sole income, this collections company can not legally collect from you. I would suggest contacting a local legal aid agency to assist you in stopping this company from calling you and/or your family members.

Fingerhut had gone out of business in 2002, the current Fingerhut kept the name and the distribution warehouse. All accounts from the former Fingerhut had been sold to a company called CompuCredit. If there was a balance on your old Fingerhut account, it would have been turned over to them. If your address and phone information had been current or updated, your family would not be contacted. But, for some reason this company was able to track down family members for the purpose of collections on a debt.
I do not condone this action, but you must understand that when the original Fingerhut went out of business, part of the reason was due to so many outstanding and delinquent accounts.
I hope that you are able to resolve this issue, and again, I strongly suggest that you contact a local legal aid organization to assit you and apprise you of your rights as a consumer.
