A Georgia woman represented by a Minneapolis law firm has filed a suit against the parent company of Eden Prairie-based Fingerhut alleging that the mail-order retailer marks up prices as "finance charges in disguise. The class-action suit was filed Aug. 27 in U.S. District Court in Minneapolis on behalf of Georgia-resident Jessica Parm by attorney's Melissa Wolchansky of Halunen Law in Minneapolis and Jeffrey Kaliel of Tycko & Zavareei, based in Washington, D.C. The suit targets Bluestem Brands, the parent company of Fingerhut.com. The suit claims Fingerhut's interest 24.9% annual interest rate and finance charges violate usury laws in Minnesota and Georgia; it also alleges deceptive trade practices, unjust enrichment and violations of the federal Truth in Lending Act. The suit, which seeks to be certified as a class-action, alleges, for example, that Fingerhut charged $539.99 for an iPad Mini 3 when its retail price is $399.00 on the Apple iTunes store. The suit also compares the price to another retail website operated by Bluestem, called Gettingiton.com, that offers the same device for $439.99.
