You did the right thing.  Capital One is looking for ways to maximize its profits.  I thought the new law prohibit them from charging over the limit fees.  I have never received a call from any bank after getting approved.

Re: cap one overlimit protection

Limits on over-limit fees: Consumers must "opt in" to over-limit fees. Those who opt out would have their transactions rejected if they exceed their credit limits, thus avoiding over-limit fees. Fees charged for going over the limit must be reasonable.

no calls, just an opt in or opt out letter.  if they had called me i wouldn't have answered anyway.

yeah, i can see why you would want to answer......but i don't answer any numbers i don't already know.  if they want to talk to me, they better leave a message, because i don't call back, either.

LOL, I'm the same way. They can't leave me a voice message. They would have to text me.  But any unknown call coming from the Miami area, I answer it.  It could be about a job or school related.
