In March 2015, a complainant alleged that the lender failed correctly to process a payoff and indicated that he filed a complaint to “expose the inept, poor customer service of this company.” According to the complainant, he paid off his car loan using the same checking account he used for regular payments on the Capital One Auto Finance website by selecting the “pay off” option on the website’s “make a payment” page. A few weeks later, the company called and reported that his monthly payment was past due. When the complainant checked the website, it showed the payoff and then showed the payoff was removed. The complainant indicated that the company claimed that the bank had “refused” the payment, but the bank had no record of a withdrawal attempt. During a lengthy phone call, the complainant made the payoff again, and the company representative told him the payoff was complete and he should expect the title. Capital One Auto Finance later called the complainant again and demanded further payment.

Also in March 2015, a complainant alleged that he paid his auto loan by automatic payment twice monthly, but the company failed properly to process his second monthly payment.

The company then charged him late fees and reported negatively on his credit.

Capital One Auto Finance Calling You?

Understanding Your Debt Collection Rights

Consumers are protected from abusive debt collectors from the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). By way of instance, the debt collector must identify himself or herself, who they’re working for, and what debt they’re collecting. The FDCPA claims that debt collectors can’t use any deceptive or misleading representation, like implying the debt is secured by the USA or any particular state. Additionally, they can’t use a badge or uniform to pretend they’re a government employee collecting a debt. Misrepresentation is a violation of the FDCPA and could be reported as such.

In case you’ve been a victim of a debt collector’s wrongdoing, then you can search for justice under the FDCPA. You have the right to pursue a claim against the debt collector; if you prevail, you can collect up to $1,000, plus attorney fees and court costs.

    I am a co borrower on a truck debt for my ex fiancé, after I had to get a retraining order we broke up. He stopped paying for the truck, Oct of last year I get letter from capital one for debt settlement. I try to do the options of 6 payments, then they would write off the rest and send me a 1099 c. I made 1 payment but since I had a loss in job I couldn’t make any more and they would not take a partial payment, so in Jan 2024 they said the agreement was canceled. In February 2024 I get another settlement letter less amount instead of 3777.00 payoff they want $2993.00 for pay off and I would get a 1099c and it would be reported to creditors as paid for less than the amount owed. This time I knew I should not do the payment. So from that last job I took out what I had in my 401k And sent them a cashier check for the lump sum amount and I sent it certified. I had till 4-25-24 to accept the offer, I sent it 4-2-24 they got it 4-5-24 they credited my account but put the payment on interest, but they have not settled the account as paid it still show’s delinquent and they have sent me out another settlement letter. Is there any way they can be made to honor their agreement? I was a tiny to get this taken care of and be done with them?

    Got into a argument with customer service of trying to make a payment. I told him that the other customer service rep told me I can make half of my payment. This man argument me up and down telling me that if I don’t pay 749 in full, you break the plan and they gone repo your car. Now they telling me that if I don’t make the full balance. They taking my car and gone repo it. I have a contract telling me to make 352 every month but now they saying because I threaten a customer service rep. I will how to pay in full or turn car in to police or back to car lot. This is not fair and I’m looking for a lawyer to handle this case. I told them I need to make a payment of 2400 to get me back current and they still say they taking my car. This is not right because of a rude service rep and he was not expecting me to go back off on him for being rude. I ask him to sent me to someone else and to told me know and stood on the phone. They never called me back to discuss payments. They said we will be sending you a letter in the mail. I told them can I pay my car up In full and they said yes but you will still get a letter in the mail. I ask them what the letter gone be and they said we don’t know but mostly be either turn the car in. They never said anything. I said what’s the point of me paying it current when y’all gone sent me a letter and I don’t know what it is. So they said they sent me a letter but I never received a letter. They called me saying if I don’t pay in full of 14,655 then I will be get repo. I need a lawyer to talk to these rude people. I talked to a lady and she said well we take threaten seriously when this man argue me up and down about my car payment. I didn’t make any more payment because they never said any thing about the letter. They just said we denting you a letter. I talk with this lady and she said well we take threats serious when this man argue me up and done about what another customer service told me. Now my car is bout to be taken because of this rude customer service and not expected me to go off on him back sad.

    I took out a loan December 2016 payments $211 per month 60 month totaling $12,660 February 2017 was the first payment. Made the first payment January 2017 and on all 3 credit bureaus my payment history was perfect 2017, 2018, January 2019- February 2020 minimum payments would have my balance around $5064 however I paid more then required on the loan and capital one even reported my balance then February 1 2020 $4229.00 and 24 months left on this loan. My Vietnam veteran, United States department of interior retiree father passed away February 6th in Nevada, I’m in Kansas and he made me personal representative. I became stuck in Nevada in the beginning of the pandemic without pay for two weeks of the 6 weeks I was there. They charged off my loan in may after I made a $300 payment, before it was 120 days late. They added repossession fees, late fees and all of this you can see on the documents they have sent to me after taking my car for repossession fees they added before they ever repossessed my car and before they should have ever charged off the loan. Then they sent an agreement for me to pick up my car here where I live by the 5th for $619 moving may and June payments to the end of the loan this after I paid $300 and another $150 going towards towing fees however I went to get the car and the car was already taken to auction in Missouri and I couldn’t afford to take any more time off work from all the time I already missed in Nevada. A total loss then the bill after auction for $657 they reported to credit bureaus the car sold for $3450 and sent to me a statement that it sold for $3600

    On December 27,2020 I had a payment come due. However, this month was tough as I had been positive for COVID as well been out of work that entire month. Come January I was late 12 days, so I reached out to the company for help. I spoke to a representative and he said he could set me up on a payment plan and broke up payments over three months. My first payment came out feb 25 for 444 dollars. All is well until feb 10 when I received a 30 day late notice and late fee. I called them and was transferred several times, dropped calls, and left on hold. Finally, I reached the escalation team. I Spoke to the rep and told him what happened.. he replied very arrogantly that although I was in a payment plan it was only meant to keep me in my car.. not to keep marks off credit. First of all I have never heard of any agreement that still sets you up for failure like that. Secondly it was never explained to me that this wools happen. Lastly, he also said I should just pay my bills .. I had enough. I went off as I had been through so much dealing with COVID and being out of work clear into January with short term disability.. I have never been so duped or disrespected by any company ever. They have the worst customer service as well very incompetent when giving information regarding your account. I reached out to the office of the president .. asked if they could review the issue again.. same response from their credit team in Plano , Texas headquarters. Stay far away from this company!

I was like I have already make arrangements to regarding my car note. Well those payments were not accepted and a manager deleted them. Wtf u mean a manager deleted them well their were make online and we don’t have your banking information. Ok I have always paid my car from my checking account and they said they don’t have it on file. So then I get a car telling to call back and set up my arrangements again because it was their fault. I call and I told them I will paid but I will use my debit card and call in my payments. I don’t trust capital one anymore.

    Paid my loan on time and faithfully. Had deductions set up from my bank acct. Upon final payment I recieved a letter stating I owed additional money. Set up for that amount to be deducted the following month for additional payment, and upon the completion of that payment reported my debt as 30 days late. This canceled my pre-approvement for a home loan. I am a 100% disabled veteran and they just destroyed my chance of purchasing a home. Lazy crooked workers and business. Must be in some sort of cohoots with credit reporters or just inebt.

  • Roman
