“GECRB” is a code used by credit reporting agencies. It stands for General Electric Capital Retail Bank. That was the name of GE’s financial division before it became Synchrony Bank in 2015.
If you have a credit card originally issued by GE Capital, that would explain the “GECRB” notation on your credit report. And the company’s transition to Synchrony Bank would explain why “SYNCB” might be listed, too. That’s possible if you applied for an account with them in the past two years.
If you believe either of those codes was added to your credit report in error, you can contact Synchrony Bank at 866-419-4096 and file a dispute with TransUnion. If you have a WalletHub account, you can immediately file a dispute by clicking “Report to TransUnion” at the bottom of the inaccurate record on your credit report. Finally, you can learn about other steps that you might want to take from our articles on inquiries you didn’t authorize and accounts you don’t recognize.
