Synchrony investigates notification error tied to Amazon co-branded card

Nov 25 (Reuters) - Synchrony Financial said on Monday it was investigating the cause of a notification sent erroneously to some customers regarding the financial services company’s co-branded card with Inc.

Customers who did not have the co-branded product received emails, saying that “a trial deposit has been successfully made to your Amazon credit builder”.

A Synchrony spokesperson said the e-mail sent in error did not include any customer data or personal information.

In June, Synchrony partnered with Inc to launch Amazon credit builder program, which lends to shoppers with a low credit score.

Amazon did not immediately respond to a request for comment. (Reporting by Abhishek Manikandan in Bengaluru; Editing by Anil D’Silva)
