Hi all. I noticed that last summer Klarna conducted searches on my credit file. I rang them and they were vague except they asked me if I purchased a new mattress around that time which I did but I paid in full when I ordered it. They advised me to contact the company I purchased from which was Tempur. Tempur said they seemed to do a credit check even if you pay in full.
My understanding is that I need to give permission for a credit check to be conducted and I'm sorry if this seems disproportionate to others but I'm absolutely fuming that they have had the audacity to do this.
Any advice (or enlightenment?)
