How to Remove SYNCB/CCSYCC From Your Credit Report


Is SYNCB/CCSYCC hurting your credit score?

Credit Saint has successfully assisted countless clients in removing inaccurate and questionable credit inquiries from their credit reports.


SYNCB/CCSYCC stands for Synchrony Bank, a major issuer of store-branded credit cards. When you apply for a credit card from a retailer, there’s a chance that Synchrony Bank is the financial institution behind it.

You may see SYNCB/CCSYCC on your credit report as a hard inquiry, which occurs when a lender checks your credit history before approving or denying your application.

The Impact of Hard Inquiries on Your Credit Score

Although hard inquiries on your credit report will typically only drop your credit score by a few points, having too many in a short period can be detrimental. Potential lenders might see you as a riskier borrower, making it more difficult to get approved for new credit lines or loans.

How to Limit the Impact of Hard Inquiries

To minimize the effect of hard inquiries on your credit score, consider the following strategies:

  • Space out your credit applications: Avoid applying for multiple credit cards or loans in a short period of time. Instead, apply for new credit only when necessary and give yourself ample time between applications.
  • Be selective with your applications: Apply only for credit cards and loans that you have a good chance of being approved for, based on your credit score and other factors.
  • Monitor your credit: Keep an eye on your credit report to ensure accuracy and identify any discrepancies that may need to be addressed.

How long do hard inquiries stay on your credit report?

Hard inquiries can remain on your credit report for up to two 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. However, the impact of a hard inquiry on your credit score will decrease over time, and it won’t be considered by credit scoring models after about 12 months.

Options for Removing SYNCB/CCSYCC from Your Credit Report

If you believe that SYNCB/CCSYCC should not be on your credit report, there are a couple of ways to have it removed:

Dispute the Inquiry

Initiating a dispute with the credit reporting agency requires submitting a dispute letter that explains why the inquiry is incorrect and calls for its removal from your credit report. Keep in mind that this process can be time-consuming and may not guarantee the desired outcome.
