PSA - synchrony bank sending out trial deposit emails in error

+118 Deal Score
12,496 Views
Since a majority of us have multiple Syncrony credit cards, I thought I would share this, in case you also received the emails.

I just received 2 emails from Syncrony bank

A trial deposit had been made to my AMAZON CREDIT BUILDER ACCOUNT
Action is required on my application

I tried calling but was told no agents were available, same with chat. However, it appears that it is being discussed via this reddit thread.

Anyways, I thought I would share in case anyone else is in the same boat. Enjoy!

You should probably put the word scam in the title and body.
My gut feeling is that this is legitimately an error on their part. Especially since there are no links etc.. in the email. Otherwise, it is a pretty terrible scam, unless I am missing something Smilie

THANK YOU for this OP - tried calling them and could not even get through. Just received a "Action required on your application." email from them now as well. Their system is screwed it appears.

Thank you so much for this PSA. I thought my account was hacked and seems like their website is really slow today too.

I got that one as well along with the other 2. So weird and scary at the same time.

Submit a complaint here to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. It actually takes about 2 minutes and is very quick:
