Capital One has terrible customer service.
First, I have "opted out of overdraft protection" on my checking account, which should mean that if I don't have enough money in my checking account, the transaction is rejected (which is what I want)
Second, I still get whacked with overdraft fees a couple times a year, even though I've "opted out" at least 4-5 times in the past 5 years.
Third, They flat-out refuse to reverse the bogus fees because of fictional "technicalities". (Once they told me that the "opt out" doesn't apply to weekends.... another time, they said it doesn't apply to credit transactions, only debit) Seriously, guys?
Fourth, I have a savings account with them that has never gone below $3000. They refuse to link the savings account to the checking account and simply take the "overdraft" from my savings account.
They are a terrible bank to deal with.
Their accounts and credit cards are not consolidated even for business banking. So you have logins for every different credit card holder and the main company. Ridiculous! Of course they don't tell you this when enrolling (this was last month, not years ago). They say upgrades are coming soon.......
Capital One Bank international wire transfer service is horrible since they merged with Chevy Chase Bank. Their international wire transfer service hour is 9 am to 2 pm. weekday.
(they do not international wire transfer on Saturday). I am working full time but I took the day off on Friday and went to Capital One Bank and do completed international wires transfer. However, the banker called later and said it is declined because banker did not put to wire purpose.
I do not understand why they need to know for transfer purpose, it is my money and will be withdrawal from my account (actually for my family support). They already checked my drive license and I got copy of transferred receipt, I asked them if they can fax to me I can put my signature and re-fax to them. But they denied my suggestion and told me that I have to stop by bank again. They should provide all information and make sure their job before customer finally stepped out of bank door.
This is second time, I got rejected. Last time, another Capital One branch banker made type error it also rejected. I never have seen like that before any of poor customer services. It is terrible and stupid banking system!!!
