Capital One in Newport News, Virginia - Calls all hours of the night
Capital One has been calling me 15-30 times a day, Seven days a week and as late as 10:45pm. my account is current or so i thought, i don't like to talk with them on the phone because of problems they caused me earlier in the year. i did answer the phone call at 10:45pm so there would be a record of who was calling me and they stated i was behind on my loan. long story short, they told me that there were late payments that were applied to my account from over three years ago. i don't know what to do about that, if there were late payments due three years ago, why did it lay dormant for three years and then all of a sudden spring up along with the harassing phone calls day and night. over the phone i disputed the late charges from 2007 still haven't heard anything about it.
Screwed by Capital One - July 2010
I have been a Capital One cardholder for 10 years. In Feb 2010, I received a letter from them stating my "Introductory" APR expired. The net result was my rate immediately changed from a steady (for numerous years) 4.95% to 15.9%. After reading that letter, I immediately called their customer service line to ask (1) why since I have never exceeded by limit nor made a late payment and (2) what options did I have to get my rate back to what it was or at least lower. I was told (quote) "We understand your frustration but apologize as there's nothing we can do at this time to lower your APR. Please call back next month to see if it's possible at that time to reduce your rate. In the meantime, I'll notate your account that you called to inquire about lowering your rate." Since Feb 2010, I called each month with the same question and was literally given the exact same (scripted) reply. In the meantime, my monthly minimum payment more than doubled to Capital One. I've struggled but paid each one and did so on time. July 2010, after six months of struggling and calling Capital One, I called again with the same question and was told by "Seth" that I could "OPT-OUT of the NEW terms" that caused my APR to jump. I immediately reacted, informing him that I've been asking this question for six months .. why only now was I offered this wonderful news? His answer: "We are DISCOURAGED from telling customers about the opt-out option which also places your account in RESTRICTED status." I asked what "restricted status" meant and he clarified that "the card could NO LONGER BE USED for purchases BUT would reinstate your original APR of 4.95%." I nearly shouted "PERFECT!" when he told me this news. He said he would need to transfer me to a "senior account specialist" to complete my OPT-OUT request. I waited approx 5 minutes and another gentlemen took over the call. He was quick to tell me: "You've unfortunately MISSED the window of opportunity to OPT-OUT of the new terms and, therefore, you are STUCK (he actually said STUCK) with the new APR of 15.9%" WTF? I was LIVID. I told him how I've called for six consecutive months asking how I can get my old APR of 4.95% back but was told to call back .. and that my inquiry would be noted on my account. He proceeded to tell me "I'm sorry but there's no record of you ever calling - to ask about your APR or any other reason". If I could have jumped through the phone to strangle someone at Capital One .. I would have. I told him this is a SCAM and that I would be blogging this online on as many websites as I could locate. He said (quote) "I would do the same if I was in your situation". Either way, Capital One are running a DIRTY business of lending. Just google "CAPITAL ONE SCREWED" and you'll find a ton of posts like mine. I wish I could dump this account but, unfortunately, I'll be stuck paying off the balance well into the foreseeable future. I have since submitted a complaint at: http://www.occ.treas.gov/customer.htm

Capital One in Capitola, California - Capitol one has no customer service!
been getting calls from capitol one demanding a payment of 34 dollars over the phone,when i owe 77 dollars! then they demand my social security number! i hang up! they call back and demand the same thing! i hang up again! i call the customer service line on the back of the credit card and ask for a supervisor, and they refuse to connect me, yelling and screaming! all i want to do is pay my bill, they won't let me because they won't send me a bill!! this company should be shut down by the FTC!!!
Capital one charged me two late fees on $2.08 interest after I paid off entire balance!
I paid off entire balance on my Capital One credit card in May. Yesterday (7/14/2010), I got a letter from them, said I had $32.08 due. After checking my online record, I noticed that there was $2.08 interest charged to my account after I paid it off, and two past due fee ($15 each) charges on it. Since I only received the letter from them two month after, I called Capital One service trying to get the past due fee removed. Instead, I got a very rule customer service - the rep wouldn't even let me finish my sentence and refuse let me talk to anyone else! Of cause, I didn't get anywhere, and ended up paying the fine and closed my account! It was such horrible experience! I'll never use their serve again in my life!
Capital One in Santo Domingo, Distrito Nacional - They do not protect against fraud as advertised!
We booked two nights at a resort online. The webpage asked for my credit card information ONLY to guarantee the reservation. My card information was used to HOLD the room only. We arrived and checked into our room. The next day we had friends visit us and they asked if we would like to stay with them that night. We went to the front desk to inquire about checking out after staying only one night (instead of the two we held). We were assured by the man at the front desk that the credit card used to hold our reservation had not been charged and there would be no problem or penalty if we checked out. Having been given this assurance by the resort, we checked out of our room and paid for our one night using an HSBC credit card. When we arrived home in October we saw that our Capital One card had been charged for 2 nights (after I had already paid at check-out)! I immediately called the resort and they were adamant that they had no record of the charge in question, saying they had not charged our Capital One card since they had received payment in full from us at check-out. I called the resort again to verify, and was again told that they had no idea where the Capital One charge came from. When I tried calling the number provided on our Capital One statement I got some obscure message from a company I did not recognize. That is when I had no option but to dispute the charge. Capital One would NOT send me the information to finish the dispute! I have record of calling them over FIFTEEN times to get the paperwork required. Finally - SIX MONTHS LATER - the required paperwork was filed. When I called to check the status, I was then told TOO MUCH TIME HAD EXPIRED! They would not honor the dispute! This is not the first problem I have had with Capital One. I will close my accounts with them and never use them again. They are an incompetent and untrustworthy company.

Capital One in Keystone Heights, Florida - CapitalOne Won't let me pay them?
All I wanted to do was pay my credit card bill. I've spent the past 7 hours attempting to log in to do so. It continuously tells me cookies are disabled when they aren't. I'm sure somehow I will wind up paying for there mistake. I just want to pay the bill and go to sleep. But all I get it log in error. This is the most ridiculous thing i've ever seen. Why cant i just log in and satisfy the debt? Why all this hassle. Maybe If I'm lucky I can pay it over the phone and be done with it.
Capital One - BAD Customer Service !!!
I made a campground reservation and later reviewing my Capital One cc charges on-line found out that the reservation fee was charged twice to my account. I called the campground, but they denied that they charged twice. Then, I filed an on-line dispute with Capital One explaining that I was charged twice for the same campground reservation. Clear?! ... NO!... Not for Capital One Customer Service... They sent me a 3-page paper form, saying that they don't understand my claim!!! What's so difficult to understand in the statement:"... I was charged twice for the same campground reservation that I made..." By reviewing my account activity you could easily see that there were two the same charges... But no, that wasn't good enough for Capitol One Customer Service. Even though I filed on-line, they sent me a 3-page paper form to fill out. What it is, is a simple case of trying to discourage you from filing, and very poor customer service and protection of customers.
