New Capital One Credit Card is restricted

Recommended Posts

I recently just received a new Capital One Platinum card in the mail.  I followed the directions to go and activate it, my friend got the same one to help build credit so I thought I would try it and she said it was super easy.  It told me my account was restricted when I downloaded the app and tried to activate it online.  It gave me a number to call and talk to.  I called and spoke to a lady and she said I need to take pictures of the front and back of my driver's license, send in a picture of my social security card, and a picture of a bill with my name and address for proof of residency.  I still have not received the email link and do not have my social security card to take pictures and send in. Does anybody know what else I can do to get it off being restricted?

Welcome to Creditboards!

We hope that you find what you're looking for here.

Some helpful tips:

  • Your post may not get a reply right away. Don't be discouraged, this is a very busy board. If it falls off of the first page, feel free to reply to your post yourself, with the word *bump* in the text. This will *bump* your post back up to the top of the board.
  • If you haven't yet, take a peek at out Newbies Section. Everything that you need to know is in that forum, for the most part. It's a lot of reading, we know, but this credit stuff can have a steep learning curve. In no time, you'll be posting like the pros!
  • If you find that someone is discourteous to you, use the REPORT button at the top right of every post - that will ensure that a moderator or admin looks at the post and decides if it is against the TOS.
  • Off -topic posts should go in the General Forum.


Again, welcome to the CreditBoards family!

You'll have to provide them with copies of the documents they requested in order to get the restriction lifted.


If you aren't getting the link to send the documents electronically, I would call Capital One to see if there is an address you can mail the copies to. You'll probably be receiving a letter from them giving the details, but if you don't want to wait for the letter, I'd call them up and ask where you can send the documents.


If you don't have a copy of your social security card, you can request a new card from the social security administration. Here is a link to their webpage with a description on how to go about getting a replacement card.
