Capital One Reporting

I'm in the process of rebuilding and just opened a Capital One card.  Previously, it's been a matter of days between opening a new account and Scorewatch alerting me to the new line being added.  It's been almost a week and Capital One hasn't hit yet.  Anyone know if they're a company that waits until the end of the first statement cycle?


Thanks

Re: Capital One Reporting

I have had and used my card since the middle of April, and they still haven reported. My statement came out may 17 and my credit step letter came a few day's ago. I dont know why it's taking so long to report but would like to know also.

You folks are not alone. 

 

Initially, my sister and bro-in-law had problems with Cap One not reporting.  Eventually they grew tired of the practices, so they stopped using the card, paid in full then closed the account.  Yet the zero balance wasn’t reported for multiple months.  The situation came to their attention in summer 2005.  It was an on-again, off-again issue for nearly two years.  They aren't sure how long it had occurred prior to them noticing it.

 

After closing the account, Cap One still had not updated their trade lines for a number of months.  When they finally did, the history was skewed.  As I recall, the skewed info included both pre and post-closure data.  Their saving grace was having several consecutive months of Cap One statements, proof of paying the full balance, a certified letter directing Cap One to close the account as well as regular printouts from their online account showing the account was inactive.  (They still had access to their online account for a few months after Cap One received the closure letter.)

 

At the time, I was unsure what to believe when sis called me about the issue, but when she showed me the documents... well, they were not storying.  Her and I even sat down to reconstruct the account history then compared it to their credit reports.  Sure enough.  They had an iron-clad audit trail and Cap One was abusing their trust.  The process also revealed that Cap One was not reporting their credit limit, and only intermittently was their high credit being reported.

 

They ended up disputing the accuracy of the TLs and they conclusively proved their claims to the CRAs, but it was time consuming and a headache.  Eventually, the correct and full info hit their reports, but not until shortly after legal action was mentioned.  (My sister works for an attorney, and she was granted permission to use the law firm letterhead in the final correspondence to Cap One.  Shortly thereafter, the tradelines were corrected.  Not sure if it was happenstance or what, but the timing of it all was interesting.)

Re: Capital One Reporting

I've had a Cap One card for 9 years and i've noticed over the years that they dont report with the balance is 0. I've decided to leave between 1-$5 on my account in an attempt to see if they will report this month. I've also had the same CL for 9 years so Cap One doesnt like me no matter how much my credits improved.

Re: Capital One Reporting

The issues all of you have mentioned are the very reasons I would never give my business to Capital One, nor would I recommend them to others.  In my opinion, Cap One abuses the fiduciary trust consumer's place in them. 

 

A directive from Congress and or a consumer protection agency needs to mandate that financial institutions consistently and fully report all data to the credit bureaus every 30 or so days, rather than allowing them to do so whenever or whatever form they please.  To do otherwise undermines the consistency and integrity of consumer data.  And most of all, consumer's are unable to reliably measure their financial successes and deficiencies. 

 

It is these sorts of blatant consumer abuses perpetuatted by institutions that contributes to buyer exploitation and institutions reap unjust financial gains.  Integrity and fairness for all needs to be restored to the system, and by extension it will gradually return to consumers too.

Here is the deal with Capital One, I have had a card with them a long time. They report the day after your statement ending date. Therefore if you have zero balance they don't generate a statement and thus they don't report. To all you people with new cards you will have to use the card and generate a balance before they report. Second, like the other poster said they have not raised by credit limit sibce I received the card many many years ago. The card I have does have decent rate of 9.95%

Re: Capital One Reporting

I was wondering the same issue.  My statement had its first cycle and I still haven't seen anything.  I was wondering if they report on a certain day, like orchard does on the last day of the month?  I have a $300 balance, so that shouldn't be an issue.

 

Thanks!

Re: Capital One Reporting

I'm also having the same issue, just received my card several weeks ago.  I have been using the card and nothing on credit report.  Just reading everyones post, it's amazing how quickly the inquire hits the report.  It is amazing how if someone defaults on their account it will report ASAP.  I am also rebuilding, and every positive trade line helps. 

 

Hope they correct this problem.  I will wait for awhile before calling Cap1.
