Sorry for the goofy thread title, I just got back from shopping out of town, got about 150 dollars in clothes and shoes for my wife and I, get to the checkout and my 6000 dollar limit Capital one is declined. Odd, Ive been paying like 1000 dollars a month in bills and paying it off every month. I KNOW for a fact its not maxxed.
I go somewhere else in the mall and buy a coffee just fine with it, later check my email and the Capital One fraud department wants me to call their 1-800 number. Apparently the Google checkout for App purchases (maybe 25 dollars worth) this month raised some red flags. Got that sorted out, confirmed my charges and was able to use my card again.
I think part of the problem is, my card doesnt scan very well anymore, so they had to run it manually at Kohls, I think Capital one was thinking the person using it didnt have the card in their posession.
Anybody else had anything weird like this happen to them?
