Credit card with SSN on it.

Postby adiaudi1211 » Wed Oct 23, 2013 11:22 pm

Hello, I just opened an account with Capitol One bank, and received a debit card. I noticed that underneath the name the added my SSN. I called them and they reissue another card.
My question is, I didn't realize that my SSN was printed on the card after a few of using it. Im really worried about any identity theft. What should I do?

i don't think most people will expect a bank, or credit card issuer, to place the user's social security number on the card

Is it very obvious? like 123-45-6789 format?

I don't have capital one bank, though I guess since my ING has been brought out by them..they've sent debit cards but i never use it and I did not see my ss# on it.

maybe someone with capital one bank can also shed light.

I would contact all three credit bureaus though, just to be on safe side

That sounds strange. I dont actually think you should be that worried. But it is such a dumb thing for a bank to do that I just can't begin to understand why they have done that.

Keep any eye on your credit if you have a monitoring service watch for any new inquiries.

If they are going to steal from you they can do it without your SSN you are always at some risk by giving out your card (yes I know many have a 0 liability and so on if you follow guidelines...) but I agree that is really stupid if they did that and just about beyond belief.

I guess it's a good thing the post office sent the card to you instead of one of your neighbors.

I would be very worried about this. It makes no sense why they would do that.
