“MCYDSNB” is a code used by credit reporting agencies. “MCY” stands for Macy’s, the department store. “DSNB” stands for Department Store National Bank, which just so happens to issue the Macy’s credit cards. So when you put it all together, “MCYDSNB” refers to a Macy’s credit card from Department Store National Bank. The credit report code “DSNB/MACYS” is sometimes used to describe this type of account, too.
You have nothing to worry about if you own such a card or you recently applied for one. If not, you should dispute the item on your credit report that makes reference to “MCYDSNB.” We also recommend adding a fraud alert to your file and following the other steps in our guides to dealing with unrecognized accounts and inquiries (whichever your situation warrants).
