Dear Capital One customer,
Online banking is essentially safe but there are some areas where consumers remain vulnerable. In our efforts to offer a competitive service and to maintain a reliable database server, we are performing a regular update on every account enrolled with us to eliminate the possibility of money-laundering through one-day accounts. In order to confirm your account and to preserve the account stability, you are required to login to your account using the following link below:
After the account has been confirmed by logging in, your regular daily actions on Capital One Online Banking website can be continued. However, in case your account is not registered, it will be automatically frozen and suspended for further in-depth check. This procedure is valid both for individual and corporate clients.
Sorry for the inconveniences caused by this message. This procedure is performed one time only and it does not require further actions on the customer side. Looking forward to your understanding and full support.
Capital One Security Service.
