Cap1 Secured cash advance

When I applied for Cap1 secured, I put $1500 behindit.  When I got the card, my cash advance limit was $750.  Since then I have increased my limits on $500 increments until I reached the max 3K.  But my cash advance limit is still $750?   What gives?  I don't necessarily need it (in fact I'm not looking for it now).  But I want to be prepared for an emergency, the biggest reason for having CCs in the first place.  Who can I call to get it raised.  I just called Cap1 backdoor and got some foreigner who told me me there is nothing I can do.....
