Synchrony Bank settles TCPA lawsuit.

Synchrony Bank has agreed to pay $2.9 million to resolve claims it violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) with unsolicited phone calls about accounts belonging to other people. Class Members can collect cash payments from this settlement.

The settlement benefits individuals who received a call from Synchrony Bank regarding an account that did not belong to them, and the call was placed using an automatic dialing system or artificial/pre-recorded voice between June 1, 2016, and Oct. 19, 2020.

Plaintiffs Curtis Neal and Roy Campbell initially filed separate complaints against Synchrony Bank, though these cases were later consolidated. Although the plaintiffs initially filed separately, they bring similar claims, alleging that Synchrony bombarded them with unsolicited phone calls about accounts that did not belong to them.

According to the plaintiffs, these calls violated the TCPA, a federal law that prohibits businesses form sending unsolicited phone calls to consumers. The law also includes regulations on how businesses can use automated dialing systems and pre-recorded messages.

“Synchrony, on behalf of Walmart and other entities, routinely violates [TCPA] by using an automatic telephone dialing system and an artificial or prerecorded voice to place non-emergency calls to telephone numbers assigned to a cellular telephone service without prior express consent, in that it places autodialed or artificial or prerecorded voice calls to wrong or reassigned cellular telephone numbers, to cellular telephone numbers it was informed were wrong numbers, and to cellular telephone numbers is was instructed not to call,” the plaintiffs contend.


Synchrony Bank has not admitted any wrongdoing but has agreed to resolve the claims against it with a $2.9 million class action settlement. Under the terms of the settlement, Class Members can collect a proportional share of the net settlement fund in the form of a cash payment. Payment amounts will vary depending on the amount of claims filed, but estimates puts these payments between $25 and $50.

In order to benefit from the settlement, Class Members must file a valid claim form by March 1, 2021. Proof or documentation is not required to be included with these claims.

The final approval hearing for the settlement is scheduled for March 15, 2021.

The deadline for exclusion and objection is Feb. 15, 2021. Class Members can submit their objections on the settlement website.

    Synchrony Bank closed my account with NO letter, NO email, NO phone calls. They have my current information and never contacted me at all. My credit card is with Sam’s Club with a credit line of $10,000. I called today 2/12/21 to ask why wasn’t I notified? Sam’s Club is making the initiative to correct this but not sure of the outcome. I’m very upset as it has affected my credit score because of Synchrony Bank.

    • Mary February 18, 2021

      They did the same to me! Just canceled all my credit with them for no reason. I have never missed a payment on any of my cards and they just closed everything and said I will receive a letter in the mail for every card. I have received nothing. Now my excellent credit will take a huge hit because of this. They have the worst customer service ever!

  • Susan February 9, 2021

    Amazon opened an account with this bank and added it to my account. I unfortunately didn’t notice until I got a statement that I owed them over 1K when I thought this was being paid through my bank debit system. I took the card off the account and haven’t used it since, continuing to make the payments on a timely manner and in conjunction with their APR. I have impeccable credit. This made me HATE Amazon. I’m paying an APR on what I thought was debit. It was a stupid mistake and I am glad I saw it! I told them they are SCAMMERS and I won’t be buying from them. I think they gave me a 35.00 credit. HA! Idiots!
