Worst Bank Ever. Save Yourselves The Misery And Please Dont Give Them Any Business

I have had a credit card account with capital one for over 3 years now. First-off, they started my account with one-fifth (that's right, literally one-fifth) the credit limit that other reputable banks were offering. None the less, i thought it would be nice to try and support a lean e-commerce organization (i'm an it nerd and yes these things weigh in my decision-making) and that i could build my history with them and they would then be willing to provide me with a more normal credit line. Anyways, i literally curse the day i thought it would be a good idea to get a capital one card. Over the past 3 years i have faced the following issues -

1) they would not increase my credit limit despite repeated phone and online requests and despite holding my account in immaculate condition

2) my account gets hacked on a quarterly basis and i have to sit undoing the charges by filing disputes and doing the needful paperwork

here's the last straw that broke the camel's back - in jan 2012 my account again got hacked. I got tired of dealing with them and requested that my account be closed. I was assured by their dispute officer that not only has the dispute been settled but they will close my account completely. In the following month all my regular vendors were able to ding that very same credit card despite it being "closed". Since it was closed, i did not bother checking until i got a late payment email from capital one. After over 22 hours of phone follow-up trying to make them understand that i was not liable for making payments that occured wholly due to miscommunication on their part i finally had to anyways pay the entire amount. My lesson learnt - never again deal with a non brick & mortar company. I wanted to share this experience with everybody out there. Even if it deters one person from giving these scumbags business i will think i made a difference in making the world a better place..

larger the company the worse the service

capital one .com invited me to sign up for credit tracker.. yesterday I did and today I get email of change in my score. therefore today I log on to capitalone.com only to find NO LINK to the service now that I had signed up.. better yet customer service (nonservice) said they couldn't help me with it because the tracker is provided by a third party. So once again capital one is only interested in signing you up for something with no intent to ever service the idem.

I have been with ING for years, no more since the Capital One merger

Yes, they are a money-fee hungry beast. ING was great but now that they merged with Capital One, you should dump them both or expect fees that touch the legal limits.

Go to a Credit Union, they are fair and easy to join these days. Capital One and ING now enjoy a revenue model that caters to people with no options..You can do better.*
