Capital One Financial on Thursday said it will repay customers a total of $775,000 as part of an agreement with federal regulators over annual fees the bank assessed on closed accounts.

The bank will reimburse 18,400 customers across the country as part of an agreement with the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency.
