Hey folks - been awhile since I have been on these forums ! I just wanted to get people to weigh in on this, as I just recieved an email from PAYPAL CREDIT stating new changes comnig as of the end of JUNE 2019, as a result of Synchorny's buyout! Check your emails, PayPal Credit holders ... They list:
* Increase in late fee from $38 - $39
* Credit Reporting: "We MAY report account acitvity to credit bureaus, etc etc ..." !!! I called PayPal Credit and the agent stated that this may occur for only late payments, or may be all account activity - they are not yet aware. I was wondering if anyone else phoned in about this yet to see what answers they received (as we all know, every new rep = new answer!) She stated that while PayPal has never reported account activity, they may do so now that Synch has fully taken over, but this is not set in stone and may only occur on delinquent accounts.
If anyone has any further info or input, please weigh in -- this could really rattle a lot of people's profiles, especially if it reports as revolving credit card vs. a loan etc. Any information would be greatly appreicated!
Even when it was Comenity I always figured that if you ever went into default the "hidden tradeline" wouldn't be so hidden pretty quickly. It's an "honor among theives" kind of thing - "Hey other lenders! This guy is a deadbeat!"
Did anyone else get an email this morning saying that their PayPal credit line was going to Synchrony Bank?
It looks like it is no longer going to be a hidden line of credit, among other changes.
My payment was late by half an hour the other day, so I'm wondering if this is the result of that or if this is being done across the board.
Well, this is the email I received this morning. They are making changes, which were in the email. So I'm wondering if this is happening across the board or if this is because I made my last payment just after midnight, so it was late.
Here's some of what was in the email:
