Type of a scam Other

I recently completed an online survey presented as: Walmart survey $50. After answering the questions, I was given the choice of several products as my gift to only pay shipping to receive. I only selected one item and agreed to pay the shipping cost. I payed the shipping with my debit card. I recently checked by bank account and noticed I had to charges: One for $99.97 and another for $99.57. I called the number listed with the transaction information and found out that I was expected to pay over $200 for the watch that was suppose to be a free gift and another $200 for a necklace I had not even selected. After much discussion, the company agreed to reimburse my account for the full amount and sent emails saying my account was closed and I would be given back my money. That was two days ago. I have not had the money reapplied in my account as of today. I have tried to contact Walmart to inform them of this scam but have had no luck getting in touch with them.

This looked like a perfectly legitimate promotional Gift Card offer. I have a WalMart credit card and use it often. We were to pay $5.00 processing fees to receive a $100 gift card to be used as one wished as a thank you to good standing customers. It was to arrive within the week. Time passed so I called the number given me. There was no answer. Later on a called again. No luck. about 2 weeks later I got an answer so complained that I never received ;my gift card. All apologetically they promised to resend it if I accepted their additional gift of magazines at no charge now. I didn't want any magazines but in order to get the gift card I had to accept them but could cancel any time. I finally agreed. Nothing ever came. several weeks later I received an invitation to access my new sub. to Better Homes and Gardens on the computer. I immediately replied That I had wanted to cancel and didn't want to end up paying for mag. sub. I never wanted. They did cancel but gave me the name of the company that had to be contacted. I got a hold of them and the mag. sub are taken care of but they could not help me know what to do about the $5:00 for the $100 gift card.

I used my Walmart pay card to pay for groceries. While on the internet site which I thought was Walmart I was solicited through a survey to become a secret shopper. I filled out the pertinent info and they said they would be in touch if I was hired. I got a priority envelope in the mail with a check and an assignment. I was to send $1600 to one guy & 800 to another

I have received 2 emails from "Walmart" that I need to confirm my address of the shipping company? and I ordered 2 products totaling $2500.85. They also state they are trying to "Gibe" (spelled exactly like that) our customers The best Experience, capitalized as in the email.

This is obviously a scam and it makes me angry. I want Walmart to know what is going on and I hope you investigate the matter.

Received a pop up on a general Google search page with the YouTube logo. Stating Walmart was giving away free gift certificates and I would be eligible after answering four simple questions regarding my YouTube usage. Don't know what I was thinking but seems simple enough so answer the 4 questions. Then took me to another page that asked for my name, phone number, street address and birthday. Skimmed over the fine print where it was stating I would be required to complete a certain number of surveys and such to be qualified. Obviously at that point came to my senses and backed out of it. Thought it was worth reporting though.

I downloaded an app on my phone called," Free gift cards for walmart" under the understanding that after you played on this app so long and earned enough coins you could exchange them in for gifts cards for walmart that would be emailed to you. I played and saved enough for a $250 gift card and cashed them in and it never came and I depending on that to get me threw the rest of the month because I have no other money to buy my groceries so this is really awful for them to do this. They are praying on people's need to survive and I think it's just wrong and I think appropriate action needs to be brought against them so they don't keep scamming people. Luckily I never put any money into it but I'm sure others have to earn the coins. Please Please please put a stop to them. Their logo is the Wal-Mart shopping bag. Thank you.

My mother, who is 81 years old, and my aunt, who is 84 years old, both live in Palm Bay (Brevard County), Florida.  I sent each of them a $100.00 gift card from Walmart, which I purchased on the Walmart web site (not from a third party).  Walmart mailed them the cards, but when they tried to use them they were told that there was zero balance on the cards.  When they spoke to the manager, he told them that their cards had been “hacked” at Store #9115.  It turns out that Store #9115 is the code for the Walmart corporate offices, so Walmart is essentially saying that this is an “inside job.”  Also, if you look up “Walmart Store #9115” on Google, you will see many posts by people complaining about the exact same theft, going back to 2004!  Here is one group of posts:

https://m.facebook.com/walmart/posts/10153178743219236

It is amazing that Walmart can continually offer these cards for sale for years, knowing that they have a security flaw this egregious.  I’m surprised that there hasn’t been a class-action lawsuit against them for it.  Perhaps other elderly Florida residents have also been robbed by this indifference?  In any event, I have contacted Senators Rubio and Nelson, both of whom serve on the Senate Special Committee on Aging.  I hope your office will look into this matter as well.

Type of a scam Sweepstakes/Lottery/Prizes

I received a call from a roaming phone number (Jamaica). Several calls came through to me. I finally answered it on the 2nd day. Person identified himself as Andy Goldberg and informed that I won a lucrative sweepstakes for being a Walmart customer. He told me that I had won an Apple Macbook, a Whirlpool refrigerator, a GMC Denali truck and $8.5 million. In order to receive my prizes, I had to first go to my bank and take out $8000 worth of cash advances on my credit cards. Afterwards, he would give me the acct # and routing of a new bank acct that he set up in my name. From that acct - I was to pay off my credit cards and then go to Walmart to receive the remaining prizes. I kept him on the line for about 30 min. I even told him I was in my car, driving to the bank. He wanted me to stay on the line with me, while I completed the tasks. I told him that I needed to answer an incoming call and asked if I could call him back in a few minutes. He then hung up without a reply.

Not sure how to answer some of your questions above, not sure why I did not see "E-mail" but here it goes. Thus far, received 4 emails stating my order has come in.....but does indicate which Walmart or phone number so did a bit of research and apparently, none of these items are under my name or have "come in". Additionally, the order # in the subj line of the email is NOT the same as in the body of the email.....HOW do I stop this, so I don't end up losing any money or merchandise in the future? Oh yes, these emails are coming NOT into my personal email box, but my GOV'T inbox....attached is one of the four emails received in the last week.

Gold and white postcard came in the mail today, one side stated just a1800-488-9046 with"call toll free to get complete details"above the number,also above that "Congratulations" your order entitled you to claim a $50:00 Walmart gift card". The little to barely any information on it just seems very fishy to me. When called it rang an unusual amount of time. Almost about one minute! The female that answered appeared to have b been laughing and chatting with someone in the background, she answered and said "Hello, good afternoon! I'll take it your calling about your free fifty dollar gift card" .. I hung up immediately. It sounded very un professional very Unwalmart like if you would

I was called by this Texas number to let me know that I had won a $100 rebate that could be used at WalMart or Target. They wanted all of my personal information and refused to answer my questions about their company or the way that I would receive the rebate unless I provided the information he needed from me.
