Capital One and their AF...

I've noticed that Crapital One is imposing AF's on current card holders. Anyone know the reason for this?

They are blaming it on the new credit card law, just like all the banks are doing.

Well, I work for a finacial institution based in Long Beach, CA & hearing the new fee structure for CC's is laughable, and that is the rhetoric....the "blame" is the new CC laws. I laugh simply because (though myself and many counterparts hear this) I know I am one of a FEW within my counterparts that understand it has NOTHING to do with CC laws. It is simple GREED and the fact that the gov cut the hard revenue tactics off by the mid-section, well...not totally but it forced the companies to come up with new ways to nickel and dime you to death.....

Well then, it is due to the new credit card law :smileytongue:.  They can no longer make money by slapping you with all their other fees so they now slap you with an annual fee and, instead of blaming it on themselves, blame it on the new requirements
