Consumer Complaint: I was trying to work with Capital One previously to resolve the debt but due to my work schedule I had them working with my wife after giving permission multiple times and advising them to not contact me directly but her. She tried to make arrangements but the calls were not made to her as scheduled and without the proper follow ups she was unable to make arrangements that were satisfactory. This went to XXXX XXXX XXXX and I got one letter dated XX/XX/2018 that came sometime around the first week of XXXX. I tried to call the number on different occasions and always got a voicemail or busy signal. No calls were ever returned to me. The next thing I see is a notification from the post office that another letter is on the way and when I checked court records they have filed a warrant in debt. ( I am scheduled for notification from the post office due to not getting my mail as scheduled and still do not know if this will actually show up ). I am extremely upset as I was not given proper opportunity to try to work out a settlement and get arrangements in place. I was only contacted the one time. This is not fair and absurd. It is not my fault they have the office number set up to not work or choose to not return calls. Also more than one letter should be sent.
