I received a letter from "Capital One" saying I qualified for a $5000 loan, no credit check required. It would be wired to my bank account within 24hours, and if interested call direct at 206-414-1020. I called and started asking questions about how this supposedly worked, and the line went dead.

I received a phone call from an automated system that sounded identical to the capital one automated system. I missed the call initially, so I called the number back, and heard the “capital one” automated system. Asking me for the last 4 digits of my card number. Since I did not have my card available at the time, I said I don’t have it. Then, just like the capital one system, with the same exact voice used, it asked for my social, which I entered (this is something i have had to do many times when actually contacting capital one, so it did not seem out of the ordinary for me at first). Then it asked for my birthday, but I Started to become suspicious, so i hung up and went to the capital one website and contacted them via the phone number provided. The representative confirmed that the number that called me was NOT a capital one number. She assisted me in canceling my current card and sending a different one by mail. The number that called me was (800) 903-3637?.

Got an e-mail that is very real from Capital One. It had the last four # of my credit card, my name, and every detail you would expect correctly on the site. It said my credit card is expiring soon, which is correct, and they need to verify my mailing address. I attempted to log into my account to check my address. The site would not let me log in. Since I did not use the site often, I thought I used the wrong password. It went to Name, SS#, and birth date to change my password. Classic phishing. I went to Google Capital One and the same result. So I sent the info trying to log in anyway since I needed credit card info anyway. Still nothing. Using the phone # on my card, I found out the email/google site were fraudulent. I have ID theft protection and there are no attempts to use my info yet….but I will watch closely.
