Nonsense. I have seen otherwise too many times to believe that.
I actually probably should reword that. Synthetic is kind of a strange type of oil, it acts differently in all cars. But from what I have seen and heard, people who switch to a synthetic with higher miles (60K or greater) have had leaking problems. I would never use a Full Synthetic, because its expensive and kind of iffy to use. Im happy with my Castrol Synthetic Blend thank you.
