If you don't agree with our final response, or are not willing to allow more time you can contact the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) within 6 months of our final response. The FOS exists to mediate in disputes between consumers and financial services companies. It is a free service to consumers and their findings are binding on financial services companies. The FOS will not be able to take up a complaint until we have issued our 'Final Response'.
You can contact them at:

If you wish to submit a complaint to the FOS online, you can do so by visiting the 'How to complain' section of their website and completing their online contact form. If you entered into your agreement with us online, you also have the option of using the online dispute resolution (ODR) platform set up by the European Commission. The platform will redirect your complaint to the FOS, which is likely to mean it takes longer to resolve than if you contact the FOS directly.
You can find more information and access the ODR platform at http://ec.europa.eu/odr opens in a new tab .
If you wish to use the platform, you will need Capital One's email address (enquiriesUK@capitalone.com), postal address (Capital One, PO Box 5281, Nottingham, NG2 3HX) and website address (www.capitalone.co.uk).
