Type of a scam Credit Cards
I applied for a credit card that was approved. Then I tried to activate it and on several times they told me to send pictures of driver licence. Which I did. Several days later I called to see about the approval they kept saving picture too blurry. Do I used 5 different divorced to send pictures and they say the same thing. This last time on 6-27-2019. The guy wanted me to send pictures of social security card. Bank statement and copy of Iicence again. He has all the info already. I don’t understand why they can’t use the computer to expand the image and why now they want copy of social and bank and licence. I’m worried it’s a scam and they have all my information.

Type of a scam Sweepstakes/Lottery/Prizes
Letter & envelope from Capital One Bank mentioning International Sweepstakes attached.
The important fact is my mother "*** ***" has been deceased since Feb 2007 !!!!!
I have tried phoning the number on the letter but it only takes messages.
I have looked up the address in NY and it is "Human Rights Watch" + the phone number is different.
I have tried to also trace the return address on the envelope….. and came up withnothing….which is no surprise as "Mississasagua" is even spelled wrong.
I am most upset to be getting a scam letter for my deceased mother !!!!!
