How can I remove Synchrony Bank from my credit report?

Your credit score can be affected for seven years if there is a debt entry by Synchrony Bank collections.Synchrony Bank seems to be well known and trusted by companies, and a negative report from them could reduce your chances of getting a new line of credit or personal loan in the future. You can take action to have the debt removed from your credit report by:

  • Sending a Debt Validation Letter to Synchrony bank to have them verify the debt belongs to you. If they cannot verify the debt, they should remove it from your credit report.
  • If Synchrony can validate the debt but you still question the debt, investigate and dispute the debt with TransUnion, Equifax and Experian. They will consult with Synchrony Bank and remove the debt from your report or correct the inaccurate sections.
  • Requesting a pay-for-delete agreement: Such an agreement means that Synchrony Bank commits to deleting the debt from your credit report once you pay the agreed amount.
  • Asking for goodwill deletion: Synchrony Bank has no legal obligation to delete the debt after you pay; they are only required to change the status from unpaid to paid. Having a paid status is better, but it still reduces your credibility. Politely ask them to remove the entire entry from your credit report.
