How to Remove Abt Synchrony From Your Credit Report

Is Abt Synchrony hurting your credit score?

Lexington Law Firm has successfully assisted millions of clients in removing inaccurate and questionable credit inquiries from their credit reports.

What is Abt Synchrony?

Abt Synchrony is a credit report code that stands for Abt Electronics Synchrony Bank.

Abt Synchrony may be on your credit report as a hard inquiry. This usually happens when you apply for an Abt Electronics credit card issued by Synchrony Bank.

Abt Electronics is an electronics, appliances, and home goods retailer located in Glenview, Illinois. The Abt credit cards come with 6, 12, and 24-month special financing options.

What is a hard inquiry?

A hard inquiry occurs any time you apply for new credit and the lender or creditor runs a credit check. It can be for a mortgage, apartment, car loan, credit card, insurance policy, cell phone, and sometimes even a job application.

Hard inquiries will typically only drop your credit score by a few points. However, if you have too many, especially in a short period of time, they can really start to add up and do some damage.

What is a soft inquiry?

A soft inquiry typically occurs when a company checks your credit history as part of a background check. It can also happen when a credit card issuer or lender checks your credit to prequalify you for an offer. Sometimes a soft inquiry might even be pulled by an existing creditor just checking on your current credit situation.

Soft inquiries do not have an impact on your credit scores.

How long do hard inquiries stay on your credit report?

Whether you get approved for the Abt credit card makes no difference. The hard inquiry will remain on your credit report for up to 2 years. Each time you make an inquiry, it is recorded by one or all of the three major credit reporting agencies: Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion.

Unauthorized Inquiries

If you don’t recognize the inquiry, or you are sure you didn’t make the inquiry, contact Abt Electronics and ask them why an inquiry was made. The creditor’s name should be listed under the hard inquiry section of your credit report.
