    Capital credit I believe is the bank that also issues Office Depots store credit cards. There should be a number for you to call and ask questions. If not try an online search, or look there phone # up using the online yellow pages. Hope this helps.

    Unfortunatly, there is no contact number(s) listed.. that is one of the reasons why I am still somewhat aprehensive about sending them $37.00..why would they need the fee up front..

    Office Depot's card is issued by Associates Capital Bank (NOT the same as Associates National Bank, I found out!).

    I also received the same offer. This company is BAD news. Its a catalog company, NOT a real major credit card. They have complaints filed with the BBB, You can see for yourself at The company (Capital Credit) also has their own web site, their phone # is (714)881-7777.

    i also forgot to add, every legit bredit card offer has a postage paid envelope, This company wants you to put your own stamp on the envelope.. this is a thief waiting for your money.....STAY AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    RE: capital credit gold card

    I can't believe this!! I was offered a gold visa with a 15,000 limit. I was stupid enough to send the check for 37.00--the check was cashed immediately-all I have received since then is a Priority Notice telling me my card had been printed and will be arriving shortly. I called the number for the Membership Support Center (oh, puh-leese!) and you can only access them if you ALREADY have your credit card. This is a real Catch-22!!! I am going to notify the U.S. Postal Service about the possibility of mail fraud. I have found that the Better Business Bureau is a joke with no punitive powers whatsoever!! I am so disgusted with myself for being so gullible!!!
