Not your average Capital One Credit Limit Increase(S)

I got my Capital One card in 2014. It went from $500 to $750 then stopped (Likely due to my fraud alert). At the time I had bad credit so I didn't bother requesting CLI's. Once I started to clean it up everytime I requested one I was denied and later received a letter saying I had a fraud alert and Capital One could not reach me. I later found that I never listed my phone number. At the beginning of this month I added my number and requested an increase. I played phone tag a couple times and ended up requesting another increase online in case they weren't going to call again. Monday I received a call from the fraud department and they granted me an increase of $1,000 bringing me to $1750. Then today I received another call from the fraud department from my last request and they gave me an additional $500 bringing me to $2250! From what I've read this is not typical at all and I am not quite sure why they granted me another increase before 6 months. Just thought I'd share Smiley Happy

I don't think they show up for me because of my fraud alert? I was also just approved for a QS1 the other day though. I think the double increase had to do more with the fraud alert and possibly not completing the steps program? I only went from $500 to $750 in 2014 and that's where it stopped.
