Legitimate Syncrony Bank confirmation call.
It's from Synchrony Bank about Discount Tire purchase I made on DT card
I received a call from "John Jones" at 877-214-5967. The man asked for me and when I identified myself, he told me he needed to meet with me because he had a "sealed civil lawsuit" that needed to be served on me. I asked him who was suing me and he said he couldn't tell me because it's sealed (that was my red flag because my career was in legal services and that's simply not true in Florida). He told me I needed to call 866-493-2377 "to resolve this matter before it gets worse". When I called the number, I received an automatic answer that said I would "win" a cruise for answering "three simple questions". The first was whether I was over the age of 50. At that point, I hung up. Reported to FTC
They were calling to verify my new account at sunglass hut. it was legit.
It's legit. If you started any financing with a company that Syncrony Bank is handling, they will call you to verify and confirm.
Said it was Syncrony Bank, calling in reference to my hhgregg card, and asked me to call back at this number. I don't answer my phone, so they will never get a real person here. fat chance. Way I look at it, it's a new account with a legitimate charge, they have no reason to be calling me at all, do they? I consider that spam. If I am late on a pmt, they have a reason to call. Since I've not got a statement or the TV yet, no late payment for sure. If they want to call and bug someone, try HHGregg, they can tell them whatever they need to know. One more reason to consider returning set before I even pick it up or pay it off cut the card up when it comes and forget them. I hate BS and wasted time.
Legit, I just opened a account with hhgregg.
All good. Automated system confirmed terms of new account with GE Capital via Pearle Vision. Did not request any personal information.
GE Capital called to verify recent "credit card" activity after I opened a 6-month 0% financing with Discount Tire. The voice prompt also explained the terms of my financing. This call is legitimate.
