Why Is Capital One Bank Suing Me?

You may be able to win Capital One lawsuits, or ... settle them before a judgment is entered against you."

Capital One Bank is suing you because it thinks you owe on a debt, likely a past-due credit card account. Most consumers are surprised when they get sued by a credit card company, like Capital One.

Some consumers think they don’t owe the debt because their account was “charged-off.” A charge-off, however, is simply an accounting procedure. It does not mean a debt is no longer owed. Other consumers are surprised about lawsuits because their accounts are so old. 

Why Is A Debt Buyer Suing Me For A Capital One Credit Card?

Capital One Bank often sells consumer debt to debt buyers, like Midland FundingPortfolio Recovery Associates, and Cavalry SPV I LLC. “Debt buyers” generally purchase old consumer debt for pennies on the dollar, then try to collect that debt in full for profit. To learn about debt buyers generally read this post: What is a debt buyer?

BCJ Law has a very high success rate against debt buyers, as they usually don’t have the evidence or witnesses required to win debt collection lawsuits in Pennsylvania. If you’re getting sued by a debt buyer on a Capital One Bank credit card, complete our contact form or call BCJ Law’s debt defense attorney at 1-800-997-5561.

Can I Win If I Get Sued By Capital One Bank?

You may be able to win a Capital One Bank lawsuit if it doesn’t have the evidence to prove its case. In Pennsylvania, credit card companies need the following evidence to get a judgment in court:

  • Contracts: these documents are necessary to prove the interest fees, and terms agreed to by the parties.
  • Account Statements: these documents are necessary to prove the purchases, interest, fees, charges, debits, credits, and other amounts that make up the debt at issue.
  • Witnesses: witnesses are required to authenticate the contracts and account statements,and testify how these documents apply to the account and debt at issue.

If Capital One doesn’t bring the documents or witnesses it needs, you should win and they should lose. BCJ Law has won lawsuits filed by Capital One Bank because they failed to provide the proper documentation.
