INDIANAPOLIS -- A Greenwood woman is thanking Call 6 Investigates for helping to resolve a disputed charge involving her 91-year old mother’s stolen credit card.

Call 6 Investigates aired a story August 8 in which Dawn Bruce expressed frustration about not being able to get a $1,500 charge reversed on her mom Bonnie’s Lowe’s credit card.

Bruce said thieves stole credit cards from the Bickford of Greenwood assisted living facility, and records show a slew of purchases were made with Bonnie’s Lowe’s credit card on July 1.

Call 6 Investigates contacted Synchrony Bank and Lowe’s on August 8 on behalf of Bruce.

Bruce received an Aug. 9 letter from Synchrony Bank, which services the Lowe’s credit card, saying they have concluded their investigation.

“The disputed amount, all associated charges, and fees have been credited to your account,” read the letter. “We have updated the major credit reporting agencies (Equifax, Experian, and Transunion) to reflect our resolution of the dispute in your favor. It may take up to 4 to 6 weeks for the credit reporting agencies to remove the account information.”
