NEVER GIVE YOU SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER TO ANYONE! Call the number on the back of your card. They WILL NOT ASK FOR YOUR SS#.... EVER!
Do not believe the threads that say this is "the true capital One" always call the number on the back of your card!!! They will confirm this!! Not the con artists on these threads! Desperatoes trying to make an easy buck! Use wisdom!!
This is a phishing SCAM!!! For sure! Anyone asking for your social security number which is the most sensitive personal info one can provide is looking to use it for personal use! Never ever give your social security number to anyone calling you pretending to be American Express, Capitol one, MasterCard, etc.... Legitimate companies wil never call you asking for your social! Be wise!! If they are calling YOU! This info should be available, the only time you would provide the last four of your social is when you are calling inquiring about your account for security purposes! The more enlightened you are the less these low budget fools will collect! Lets be smarter Americans! These fools called me several times and left a message stating they are calling from Capitol one collecting a late payment I called the real Capitol one number on my card to let them know there are scammers defaming their name! I also confirmed with them I do not owe anything and my account is not past due! Lets stop these idiots by being smarter! Do not give out your private info to anyone calling you!!!!
its not a phising scam...its CAPITAL ONE CALLING TO COLLECT YOUR DEBT...Geeze you people are friggin ignorant...
let me ask you something?
why are they scumbag reps?? because you are to poor to afford your bill for one reason or another and they are the ones paid to call your sorry financially inept self and ask you to give them the money YOU owe?? whos the scumbag? YOU ARE. :)
your cell number doesnt have to be listed on your acct.....its public info SOMEWHERE anyone can look you up and find any phone numbers youre associated with....google skip tracing
pay your bill?
maybe pay your bill and they'll stop....and your right its not Capitol One...its Capital One....learn to spell :)
I wouldnt do that, they have the ability to record threats like that instanly with literally one click....and they 100% will call the local police and you will have an issue...get an app on your cell if you dont like it and block them...if its your house phone or some old a** cell that isnt a smart phone then pay your damn bills.....
in the know
It is Capital Ones collections, its a valid true Capital One number they have third party collections in India and the Phillipines. They arent actually employee by Capital One so they dont know that Corp is in Mcclean VA and that Rich Fairbank runs the company....they arent paid to know that, they are paid to collect...if you paid your bills maybe they wouldnt call.
I also get these numbers multiple times a day, although they do not call after 8 pm, once I answered and started yelling, "You woke the baby, oh no, I just got her to sleep, oh no you woke the baby!", my youngest is 18. :)
i get this call from this number a lot, how do u stop getting phone call from number like this. Fed. Gov. need
Thanks John! Good info.
They keep calling but I don't think their aloud to hang up, because I answer and just put it back in my pocket on mute so they cant hear anything but it gives me a good laugh anyway.
Get calls every daily. No one answers. No msgs left.
It's not a phishing scam. It's really Capital One calling. I've received several calls recently, over 10 in the past week, from several numbers (866.929.5307 + 866.929.5306 + 800.955.6600 + 866.381.0453). They always call while I'm at work or at dinner so I don't answer. They never leave a message.
Frustrated, I called the number back today on my break and talked to a representative. She said there was nothing wrong with my account and she wasn't really sure why I was receiving calls unless it's for a solicitation of some kind. I opted out of solicitations by phone with her, so hopefully the calls will stop. Next time they call, I'm going to step away to answer the phone to take care of the matter once and for all.
I'm getting calls from the exact same numbers.
This number continues to call me over and over again. I told them to stop calling, but they will not.
Call and leave no message.
I told them I was going to hunt the down and kill em stop calling here and breating into my phone
this is legit. I havent paid my capital one bill in 2 months.. and now they are calling. Of course some hired cronie in India doesnt know who the CEO is of Capital one! they are just a hired 3rd party company calling customers to remind them they havent paid and get them to pay! jeesh. if you think this is a scam, go get your capital one card, & call the 800# on the back of it. im sure you will hear that you owe something or are beehind on your payments... if you are one of the people that dont HAVE a card, I would be very nervous.. and call the company directly to see if someone opened a card under your social #
I have been contacted by this phone number. I did not recognize the number and did not answer. Later after searching by reverse phone number look up, I found this was a phishing scam. I want to say a heartfelt thank you for all the people to brought this to public attention. Great job!!!
That number DOES belong to Capital One and their collections Dept.
Not a phishing scam...but rather scumbag, non-stop collection reps.
They will call you from any one of over 100 numbers they have access to, and rotate them as you hang up or don't answer one.
As you get them, ID the numbers and keep posting them here.
I get phone calls multiple times a day on my cell phone, but
they don't leave any messages.
this number keeps calling me; 2-3 times, daily from early in am to late at night CST.
I never have answered, as I did not recognize the number
It is Capital one. If you happen to get a recycled cell phone number, all the creditors of the last person who owned that number, are going to be calling you. If a person uses you as a reference for a loan or rental car and they don't pay, the creditors will be calling you. It's an unfair practice. I'm not sure how to get them to stop calling.
Just got a call at work from this number today, spoke to a gentleman who seemed willing to help me remove my company's number from their registry, and he said he would be "sending an email" to have this number removed. I'll post a follow-up in the next 2 days or so on how that went.
I keeped getting calls from them when i told them to take out phone number. They ask me if i want a loan or have capital one card which i don't. They called me every day. :(
I've been receiving calls from this number for about a month now. Everytime, silence on the other line. Also receiving calls from : 800-955-6600
I do not currently, or have in the past, had a Capital One credit card. These calls are getting irritating!
Got several calls, and they don't wait for me to answer. One time they said they were helping. Make them go away.
Got quite a few calls looking for my Grandson about his CC FROM CAPTIAL. But its when I told him my granson was 2years old. They called me a lair. These people should be STOPPED
