Stop calls from 8009556600

Receiving never-ending calls from Capital One gets old pretty fast. Here are some steps you can take to stop calls from 800-955-6600:

  1. Tell them not to call: The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) allows you to stop debt collectors from calling you. When you receive the call, answer it and ask the caller to stop calling you. Let them know you do not consent to receive automated calls and want to be on their no-call list.

  2. Send them a cease-and-desist letter: Request that Capital One stops calling you in a letter. Ensure you keep a copy of the letter for your records, and send it by certified mail with a return receipt.

  3. Sign up for the National Do Not Call Registry: Go to or call 1-888-382-1222. You may be entitled to up to compensation for each call if they violate the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).

  4. Report any violations: Immediately report the calls to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Visit to file a complaint or call 1-877-382-4357. The FCC also accepts complaints online at or by calling 1-888-225-5322.

  5. Maintain a call log. Keep a record of calls Capital One makes after receiving your written request. Make a note of the time and date of each call. Also, note any other information you can gain during the conversation, such as the names of debt collectors and creditors.

You have rights as a consumer

If a debt collection agency abuses your rights as a consumer, you have the right to defend yourself. As part of the FDCPA, debt collectors must follow specific guidelines regarding their communication with you and the activities they may engage in. FDCPA provisions include:

  • No harassment: Any debt collector who contacts you cannot harass, oppress, or abuse you. It is prohibited for them to threaten violence or harm anyone.
  • No false statements: The debt collector cannot tell lies about the amount you owe or your legal options or pretend to be someone else.
  • No unwanted calls: A debt collector cannot contact you before 8 a.m. or after 9 p.m.; they must cease calling if you request it in writing.
  • No sharing of information: Debt collectors, except for your attorney or spouse, cannot disclose your debt to anyone, including your employer.

If Capital One debt collectors have violated any of these rules when contacting you about a debt, you may be entitled to compensation. Read our guide on FDCPA violations to learn more.
