I have had a Capital One Card since 1999 and usually if not always paid my bills in full every month. Here in San Diego County we had a fire and many including my self had to be evacuated for several days. Some how, I misplaced or did not receive my credit card bill and did not pay it on time. The following Month I paid the full amount due and an abusive late charge. That was not the end, recently I made a large purchase thinking I would pay it off over time at the 8% or 9% rate I had with Capital One but found my rate had been adjusted to 27.15%, I also have a blemish on my credit report. I did call them and they offered to reduce the rate to 12% but I still find that abusive. If my company did business the way Capital One does, we would not be in business long.

I get Capital One offers all the time, but WILL NEVER get a Capital One card. Like this story, I know of a man that just lost lost his business and several months later lost his wife of 35 years. He didn't have the money for the funeral. Many people donated. He deposited the money in his checking account only to find out that Capital One had taken it through a judgment. He tried explaining it to Capital One, they didn't care.

I recently received two messages, one text and one on my voicemail. Both messages were concerning my Capital One MasterCard. Both stating that my account has been locked or blocked and I should follow the link ( further correct or unlock this matter. I did neither and called the 800 number to speak with a representative. Both times a representative informed me that my account was intact and just fine.

The tx I received was sent from [email protected] and wanted me to click on the link I stated above. Curiously enough, my mobile service is with Verizon. The phone number which the call originated was not a complete 10 digit number. It read on my caller i.d. as 25363827.

My concern is not so much with Capital One Bank but with Verizon Mobile. Is it possible that some Idiot tech genius working for Verizon is trying to hack into mobile users accounts to commit fraud?

Could someone check into this matter ASAP and follow up with an email response?

Thank You,

S. Weide

Getting phone calls from, supposedly from Capitol One ID alert, that unusual activity on my account had occurred. I was to call 800-234-3898 to see what was going on with my ID alert. According to number look up, this same call also used Citi-Bank card ID alert to get people to call back.

My name is Keith McKibben and I have been informed by Equifax that someone with the same name has a Capitalone credit card and is giving me a bad credit report. I don't own a Capitalone creditcard only an RBC platinum Visa since the 1980's. I may be able to give your investigators a clue on 2 points. In the early 1990's My wallet containing my SIN card was stolen from a Montreal Gym. In 2012 my email with yahoo was compromised so I now have an RCMP report no 14632 on file. This in Duncan,BC where I now live.

I am a retiree in my 80's and my wife and I take pride in having no debt. I will be obliged to have one of your fraud investigators to contact me as I consider this a serious matter.

Received call from a Harold A. Dieck stating he was from Capitol One and other Credit Card Services that they could lower my interest rates on all my credit cards. This person or persons in the back ground appear to seem like they are really calling from a litigate company. There where at least three people taking information. This call seems to be a scam.

Spoke with Credit Card Services regarding this matter. No knowledge of this information known. Reporting fraudulent cases. Please make this known.

Caller from a Harold A Dieck 1-314-367-3538. St. Louis Missouri.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.

I spoke to customer service today about a suspious phone #18559200708 telling me about my mastercard having issues of fraud. When I called the number it was automated and wanted my credit card number in order to get to speak to customer service. That was a RED FLAG. I then called capital one fraud devision and they advised me to give you an email about what happened. Please email me asap about this situation!!!!!!!!!

I received a call from someone representing himself as a representative from Capital One. He stated that they were offering a lower interest rate on my card (6%). He wanted me to verify the middle eight numbers on my card. I refused and told him he needed to verify to me my card number since he was calling. He would only do the first four numbers. We went back and forth and I finally told him we needed to end the conversation. He then transferred me to his supervisor who basically stated the same thing to me. I told him also that I thought this call was a scam. He then hung up on me. I immediately called the number back and, of course, the phone continually rang with no one answering. Be aware. The phone number that the call came from is 360-778-8788.

Hello Capital One, I received a call today September 17,2014 @ 1:20pm from Florida; The number was 305-368-8497. They said they were calling from Card Services and wanted to lower my interest rate on all of my credit cards. I asked him for his name, he said my name is Chase and my job ID# is 8024. He said "I calling from visa and master card services." He said I see that you pay your card on time every month. he said your last payment was paid on September 1,2014. I said yes. He said madame go get your card and give me the number.I said sir I don't give out my number. He said madame we have so many people in our system in order for you to get the lower interest we need your card number. I said what is the interest rate? He said 0-6%, you will see it on your next bill. I gave him the last four digits of my number. he said madame we need the whole card#. He asked me for my card expiration date. I gave him my card# and date. He said hold on and don't hang up. I held on for 1-2 minutes. I asked him what was my current interest rate he said 13.24%. He said thank you madame;now give me your Walmart card#. I said what; I don't have a walmart card.He said hold on. He said I'm showing you have a visa card; I need your visa card#.I gave him the# he said it did not match now I need your pin#.i said sir I don't give out my pin#Then I became suspicious and realized I had already given him my MasterCard#. I said sir I don't give out my pin#. He said hold on again. I held on for 1-2 minutes. He said ok madame you will get a confirmation in the mail within one week. He said thank you and have a blessed day. I'm still shocked; I got my credit card bill and called Capital One @800-903-3637 9:30 pm tonight. I spoke with Marybell and explained to her what happened. she cancelled my card immediately and advised me to go on line to [email protected] and tell them. Thanks Ms Marybel. I need to cancel my visa also

I have received a e-mail thanking me for placing an order. The purchase is stated as 4433 US Dollars . It has an order number and date. The. Return e-mail address is [email protected] I did not order from that company. I did purchase from Amazon about that time of day. Both purchases were less than $100.00. I feel this is a fraud and hope it is not using my Capital One card number.. Could you monitor my account?

Strike 1 - 2

3 days later after paying my payment about .75 years ago. I was contacted by Capital One Auto Finance at 2:30 - 3:00 AM as I was sleeping. They told me that my 3 months grace period was revoked with out contest or negotiation as "I was not making enough money to keep their Grace period" that I paid 50.00 for. I told them that it was not fair that one they should call me in the morning when I am trying to sleep and disturb me. And two that I had something that I actually paid money for something that I was told that I qualified for in the first place and then they turn around and told me that I did not qualify for it and so on.

For giving them the cause for concerns they decided to put me a month behind on payment.

Strike 3

They lied to the company that I was working to refinance my car with saying that I was 5 months negligent and that they were contemplating sending me to collections and repo'ing my car. Which the Financial institution checked my records and found that my story was holding up pretty good and their story was not holding up at all. And they let Capital One know that they were my primary Financial Institution where the money was coming from in the first place and then they got hung up on.

So all in all there is a Rule that I was told about that the other financial institution has to agree with the refinance.

Strike 4 (Happening now)

I am with an HUGE uphill battle that they wrongfully brought on me as I called them in on Monday January 5 found that their automated system was broken. And then called them on January 6 and talked to some one who was hard to understand and I was left with the understanding that my loan would be deferred till this upcoming February the 9th and that I would not have to pay any interest on the loan for this time as I was the one who did the first call to let them know about it.

Now I am getting harassment calls which is what they call "Courtesy calls" and they are not doing anything about it one Iotta and they gave me a broken phone number to call.

Soooo Yeah I am completely disgusted with Capital One at this point of time and I just want to see them brought down and brought down hard.

For the last two days when I try to log on to Capital One on line banking a warning comes up that says exactly this "There is a problem with this website's security certificate.

Security certificate problems may indicate an attempt to fool you or intercept any data you send to the server. We recommend that you close this webpage and do not continue to the website" Now I am afraid to use Capital One on line banking.

Vivian R., 2015-10-01, 10:15AM CDT

I received a phone call from someone named William Miller saying he was from Capital one and he had information on lowering my APR and he just needed some information from me. He had my social security number, my mother's maiden name and my account number except for the last four digits, he got angry when I started asking him questions and yelled and said he had everything he needed, when I told him I was calling the Better Business Bureau he hung up. This is the number he called me from.1-312-442-1518. When I called the number back a message came on the phone saying this person can not come to the phone at this time.
