Multinational company Credit Karma will compensate its clients. Find out if you qualify
Multinational personal finance company Credit Karma from the US has reached an agreement to compensate its users. This company will allocate an amount of $3 million to cover damages to customers.
The problem was caused by Credit Karma submitting a credit card suggestion and then not getting approved. Credit Karma’s decision to reward consumers was flagged by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).
This government agency called on affected Americans to request funds. Americans who were cheated by credit karma lowered their credit scores.
The banking authorities rejected the credit offer requested by the families, as they denied the validity of the Karma credit initiative. This company and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) have agreed to correct the error in early 2023.
The federal institution confirmed that Credit Karma used false patterns across the virtual space to confuse citizens. The Federal Trade Commission stated that approximately 500,000 residents are entitled to compensation.
The average amount those affected can collect
The credits were rolled out in 2018 and all residents who have considered taking up this financial option will be able to receive compensation. Almost all participants received digital emails from the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).
Nearly 4,000 users who do not have the online tool will be notified by mail. It is believed that due to the number of customers affected, they may average up to $6.00 per person.
Credit Karma does not admit its wrongdoing but agrees to amend the damage done to the residents. The FTC says Credit Karma does not have the ability to authorize bank loans.
Interested parties with questions about this matter may write to [email protected] and call 866-848-0871. The deadline to request compensation will be March 4 of next year and must be done through the ftc.gov/CreditKarma website.
