Maybe marauding Vikings were an apt mascot choice after all. Capital One pursues customers long after personal bankruptcy should have wiped out their debt. An ongoing audit has identified 15,500 allegedly erroneous claims. In one case, Capital One sued a woman for $4,266 in credit-card debt after she'd gone bankrupt, then asked a bankruptcy judge to throw out the woman's countersuit that accused the company of flouting bankruptcy law. The judge refused.
