So earlier today, i called CapitalOne because i made a payment on my Venture card and it still hasnt been cleared. The rep i spoke with called Wells Fargo to confirm that the payment has been withdrawn out of my account and everything went smoothly. I hung up the phone and logged out. Porbably about 2 minutes later, i got an alert saying my cashback from 2 of my other accounts were redeemed. I panicked and logged back into my capitalone account. Low and behold, i see “This account is currently restricted. (Ref. No. 10016.8481)” in red. I immediately knew that it must have been the lady i just spoke with. Nevertheless, i called in and spoke with a another account rep who transferred me over to someone else. I was then told that 2 out of my 3 accounts were closed because “they observed activities thats not consistent with personal or home purchase”. I said, “you said what now”, the rep repeated what he said. I didnt even argue and hung up. I never knew CapitalOne cares about my using my personal card for business purchases. I expected something like that from Amex, not CapitalOne. Figured i’ll just open another card with them and get another bonus. Anyways, moral of the story, dont put business purchases on your capitalone card.
