Cancel Capital One?


I just checked my credit report on Noddle and discovered a long forgotten about credit card with Capital One.

It's still registered at a previous address - that's how long I have forgotten I had it.

I have no account details for this card - No card, bills, or correspondance from them

I want to cancel it. Is there any way I could do this.

    Ring capital one. They'll ask a few questions ot confirm your identity first but will cancel it for you if th balance is zero.

    Absolutely, if you call them and provide the address it's registered to along with your name and date of birth they'll be able to find the account, and should accept your account closure request over the phone.

    I'm sure you want to get this done ASAP, as of course it leaves you wide open to identity theft / fraud at your old address until you've closed it :o
