    Capital One 14th Nov 06 at 5:56 PM
    I have been ignoring the continually building up letters from Capital One regarding my debt, plus also the debt collectors letters on behalf of Capital One too, mainly because I have been ill with my health. Ok I know its no excuse and I really shouldn't have but I was in the mind that if I threw it away and buried my head in the sand it would all disappear. Now I can say that I have decided its now time to face up to my debt.

    After reading a few things on here, and seeing one particular post about claiming a debt of bank charges I have decided to do this with Capital One.

    I had a limit of 200 but the actual debt is now way over 650.00 which is all charges and late payment charges. What I wanted to know is it actually possible to get ALL the charges paid back, although I would actually like the whole debt written off but I know that won't happen.. Now technically they won't be giving me the money back myself as I haven't actually paid them this back yet, so they would be giving it back to themselves if you see what I mean.

    I did manage to get something like this sorted out with Nationwide when basically one of my accounts was actually all bank charges for bounced direct debits and with just one email to them they happily refunded the money out of the account and cleared the balance.

    Is it possible to do the same with Capital One. I don't have any copies of their statements and as this has now been sold to debt collectors who do I contact to get the copies.

    Any help would be appreciated, sorry for the long waffle..

    Debt free as of 3rd May 2012
    But still struggling financially
