I’ve never had any statements or bills from Capital One

Capital One will have sent you monthly credit card statements either online or by post, depending on which option you chose. You would also have been able to access your account using the self-serve function on the website, which allowed you to view your balance, update personal information, view statements and make online payments to your account.

How would I have taken out my Capital One card?

You would have applied over the phone, online, or by post. For online applications you would then have ticked a box to provide a digital signature agreeing to the terms and conditions. For phone and post applications an agreement would have been sent out to you, which you would have to sign and return before the card was sent out to you.

Capital One provided us with information about your debt when they sold your account to us. This includes the credit card number, the last payment amount and date and information you provided when applying for the account. If you want to know more, call us on 0333 556 5550 or email us at support@lowell.co.uk.

Do Capital One add interest or charges and is this a part of my debt with you?

Interest and charges may have been added to your account balance in line with terms and conditions of your agreement with Capital One. However, your balance will not increase with Lowell, as we do not add any interest or charges.

Why has my debt been passed to you?

Capital One will have attempted to contact you regarding your outstanding balance. They might also have passed your account to a debt collection company to collect the debt on their behalf before the account was sold to Lowell.

Why is there a Lowell default on my credit file?

If the balance on your Capital One account remains unpaid for around six months they may have applied a default to your credit. As the debt has now been passed to us, Capital One remove their default and Lowell takes over the responsibility for reporting the default to the credit reference agencies. This allows us to update your credit file with details of the payments you make.
