  I did, a couple of days ago, it was telling me that my e-mail was on the dark web. It has the same logon as my Capital one card. It told me that someone had  opened 2 different accounts using my name for the accounts add on. I called my bank and they said, that this was not true. I still am going to be careful.

What was telling you? how did you receive this communication from Creditwise?

 

If it was email, you should ignore it!

 

To follow security protocol, you should change your Capital One pass as suggested, but for moving forward, dont respond to spam and never reveal your pass.......you will be ok!

 

Always be cautious of what enters your inbox for email, and what enters your domain on Facebook!

These are your largest attack surface area's.

I might add as well, along with the good advice you've received, take things a step further as we once did after an attempt to make charges on one of our credit cards (culprit was a restaurant employee). 
Call your card company for any details on this alert you received.
Have them cancel the card altogether.
Have them re-issue an entirely new one.
Rest easy.


Edit: (apologies for my two separate posts, coulda woulda shoulda edited the first)
