Alert from Capital One regarding T&C

Logged into my account today and this is what Cap 1 had to say about the recent news of the language in their T&C

 

 

 


You may have heard there is language in our customer agreements stating we could potentially make “personal visits” to our customers.

As much as we would like to get to know each of our customers better, we don’t visit our customers at their homes or workplaces to discuss their credit card debt—ever. We never will and apologize if we ever made you think we might.

And if we need to call you—rest assured—we will never claim to be anyone other than Capital One when we make those phone calls.

Finally, we are reviewing our customer agreements to ensure we use language that more clearly represents our intentions. We can do better.

(EX08 - 654) --- (TU08 - 643) --- (EQ08 - 667) --- (EQ04 - 676)

Re: Alert from Capital One regarding T&C

I just noticed that as well.  They've taken a bit of a beating over the "personal visits" line, so I'm glad they backed off a bit haha.

Mods...go ahead and delete.  Someone else already posted the alert in another thread in "Credit in the News".

Re: Cap One not visiting after all....

I doubt it changes how people feel about Cap-1 and since its still in WRITING and I have not received an amended T&C their announcement is irrelevant.

Re: Cap One not visiting after all....

I read that when I logged into Cap One a few days ago.. In all honesty, I highly doubt they would really visit a person home... Unless of course the debt owed was a substantial amount like 20k or more...

Re: Alert from Capital One regarding T&C

Bottom line... did they actual issue a new written customer agreement with the language change? Funny how when the dust settles things don't happen?!
