Fraudulent Job Listings Alert

9/23/2020 update

Synchrony has learned that scammers are impersonating Synchrony and posting fraudulent job listings. If you are a job seeker, please be careful not to be deceived.

The scammers:

  • Copy and redirect legitimate Synchrony job postings
  • Impersonate actual Synchrony personnel
  • Pretend to be Synchrony to job candidates
  • Extract personal and financial information from candidates like social security numbers and bank account/deposit info
  • Send something that looks like a Synchrony offer letter to applicants

Watch out for red flags:

  • Confirm the validity and source of a job listing – they can be viewed at https://synchronygroup.com/careers/
  • Beware of impersonator websites or job listings
  • Synchrony does not conduct interviews by online chat or on Google Hangouts
  • Synchrony does not require you to deposit a check or to submit funds during the application process
  • Synchrony does not ask you to provide credit card information or install a payments app like the Cash app

We sincerely regret that scammers have impersonated our company to perpetrate harm on job seekers.  We are reporting this activity to law enforcement and consumer protection agencies, including the FBI and FTC.
