My wife has been accepted for a Capital One Card with payment protection and received the pin number today, so I assume the actual card will soon be on its way. My query is this, as my wife has hard surgery to her throat etc due to cancer, her voice is barely hearable, especially down the telephone, so will she have to speak to someone at Capital One to activate the card? She doesn't recall an option on the online application whereas she could tell them about any difficulties such as needing braille etc where she could have told them about her illness. Will they talk to me?


Can the card be activated online or through an automated service at all ? Many thanks

Hi Confus,


When I activated my last card it was fully automated however that may have changed. What I would suggest is that you write/email to capital one and see what they suggest, A signed letter stating that you are able to speak on her behalf may be all that is needed but the only people that can tell you whats required is capital one themselves I'm afraid.

all you have to do is call the number on the sticker attached to the card and enter some info

it can be done via key presses.


oh and CANCEL that PPI now - not worth it!!!



please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...
