"WALMART" MAIL SCAM

wal_2

Walmart has gotten a reputation as one of the most trusted retailers in the world, but they are under heavy fire after yet another scam was launched.  Walmart has NO affiliation with any persons responsible for this scam.  A warning has been issued to the public about a new scam where a victim receives a letter in the mail with a check.  Unfortunately, the check and letter both “look” to be official.  The letter reportedly tells the recipient that they have been accepted into the “Quality Control Division” at Walmart.  It goes on to inform them of their new “responsibilities.”  The check included requires activation with a user id and a password which is supplied in the letter.   Once the recipient tries to deposit the check into their bank account, the people responsible have access to the unsuspecting victim’s hard earned money.  

Be sure to share this with family and friends.  Don’t forget your elderly!  We want to try and prevent as many people as possible from falling victim to yet another Scam!  

The Walmart Corporation has created the following very helpful website.
