Fingerhut ?, Oh Please !

by Ford
(Long Beach, Ca.)

I am getting an old bill originating from Fingerhut, that was purchased by FE LOA Base in Feb of 1996, for $86.00. I am sure that was taken care of years ago.

This old debt should not appear on your credit reports either. You may want to check them at just to be sure!
