Type of a scam Credit Cards

The actual WalMart gift card phone number I was to call is 1-888***. The number I accidentally called was 1-888-573-5503. This wrong number directed me to an automated voice service sounding much like Walmart's automated voice service. The automated service asked if I, the caller, was 50 years of age or older, after selecting no, the system then went on to say that there is a special $100 shopping certificate (redeemable at many shopping centers like WalMart and Target they said) that I can get by paying a small $1.95 processing fee via credit card. I was curious, knowing that this was strange and selected yes. I was then transferred to a live person where they said they were happy to assist me obtain my $100 shopping certificate. I then hung up immediately and dialled the number again from the card just to get a new automated system menu (this time I dialed the real number).

Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

I saw the job posted on Indeed and applied with my indeed resume. It seemed legit. Instead of an email, I received a text message to confirm application(text has since been deleted). Two weeks later, I received the UPS envelope with the letter and check inside. Seemed a little sketchy because the name on the postage was different than the name on the check and different than my "supervisor". I took the check to my bank and they advised me not to cash it, because they saw a similar check the day prior and concluded that it was fraud. After I took the check back home, I called the Northwest Bank to confirm legitimacy of the check and they confirmed it was fraudulent.

A text was sent to my fiance about mystery shopping for Walmart. I already filled out the form before discovering it to be a scam. I haven't been sent anything yet but I'm worried I may have messed up putting in my email address, phone number, and physical address.

Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

I was sent a text message that I had been selected to be a secret shopper and would receive a package in the mail soon. As soon as I checked my mail there it was and I read the paper and seen I was to buy Walmart gift cards with almost 2900 dollar check they had provided in the package. And I could keep 420 dollars of the money and a 120 dollar bonus if I completed their task in 48 hours time. This was too good to be true so I googled what I received and sure enough a news article was wrote on the same thing that happened to a man in 1 state over from me. It was a scam and was advised to report ASAP.

I had applied for some secret shopper jobs last year. 1 week ago I got a text offering me a secret shopper job for Walmart. Today I got a mailing with a check for $2450. They said to keep $350 for myself and I would buy gift cards with the rest of the money after I deposited the check. I wasn't sure if this was real or not so I called BBB who told me its a fake check scam.

I received an unsolicited email from "Walmart" offering for me to be a secret shopper at my local Walmart store. I actually think it's something I would enjoy, but am leary of getting an email out of the blue asking me for my address, phone number and other personal information. I noticed some subtle errors in the email that lead me to believe that someone is sending out emails fraudulently as Walmart. A 'Michael Hudnall claiming to be a Walmart Inc. Research Team member emailed me from [email protected] offering to pay $400 to be a secret shopper for Walmart.

I contacted Walmart, and this was their reply:

"Hi Customer,

Walmart does not call or solicit customers to offer shopping cards, shopping sprees, or membership discounts in return for bank account, credit card, or personal information; nor would we solicit the customers with these incentives for them to take surveys.

Also, Walmart currently does not employ mystery shoppers and any company that claims to be affiliated with Walmart for this type of program may be part of a telemarketing scam. Some telemarketers and internet ad companies use the Walmart name to engage the interest of the customer.

You may report the solicitation to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) at or at 1-877-FTC-HELP (382-4357). The FTC maintains a telemarketing complaint database called the "Consumer Sentinel" which is available to hundreds of law enforcement agencies in the U.S. The more concerns the FTC receives and logs, the more likely it is that some law enforcement agencies will get involved.

Customers should also report the solicitation to the Consumer Fraud Division of the Attorney General's office in their state or to the The contact information for these organizations is located in the front of your local phone book.

Thank you for contacting Walmart where we are always happy to help!"

Clearly the email I got was a scam. I have reported this to the FTC and both the Consumer Fraud Division of the Attorney General's office, and in Ohio.
