Eeka, who has a Capital One debit card, reports she discovered this morning the bank has decided to block the card's use in parts of Boston due to fraud reasons. Only problem is, they won't tell her where she can use her card"
They're unable to tell me anything about which ATMs and stores are and are not flagged, because it's sensitive data. They won't even tell me the location of one ATM that is allowing transactions to go through. She told me to drive around and try ATMs in different areas. Which, if I didn't have to work, I could. I already haven't been able to buy lunch or pay for parking where I'd intended to park. Fortunately, I have enough gas in my car for today. She told me she can't tell me how long they block transactions in an area. She couldn't even confirm whether their own ATMs in their stupid cafes worked, and said those would get flagged too if there was fraud in the area.
