The Wal-Mart and Target names are being used as bait in a scam. I received a card in the mail that tells me $*** is being held for me that can be used at "Wall-Mart, Target and more". I contacted Target Corporate to see if there is a promotion that they are part of and was told no. I was asked for the details of the scam (phone number to call) so they could look into it, and I sent the info to Wall-Mart, as well. The number I am not going to call is *-***-***-*** and my Claim *: *** if you want to follow up. Since I did not call the number, I don't know if they were trying to get money or get personal information. I put "yes" to money on your form because there isn't a choice for "I was too smart to call and find out". The numbers being blocked on this form are nothing to do with me--they are the phone and claim numbers on the card I received and the amount being held for me $100.

I received an email stating I’d been accepted to a certain survey group, this wasn’t odd to me because I sign up and do a lot of online surveys. I decided to come back to the email later and didn’t respond then not even 10 min later I got a text stating that it was this group and asking if I received my package. I said no and they text back saying I should’ve received today, stated my address and what time the packages arrived. I went and checked and the package was indeed there. I opened it up and there was a check for $***. I was instructed on the forms included to purchase a number of money orders, gift cards and $*** would be my pay. It sounded fishy but I figured I’d feel it out a bit and texted them that it had arrived. After that they started texting and calling non stop and instructing me to go buy the items and that the money is available. Little did they know I knew for sure it was not. Although I did deposit it at first I called my bank almost immediately and told them I think it may be a scam and to flag the check. Unfortunately because I deposited it my account is now in review but luckily I called almost right after, didn’t spend any of it and thank God I was tipped off before I actually did any of the “work” they wanted me to do. The “Group” is called Walmart Survey Groups, the main person goes by “James Larry West, MD” and the phone number is 281-323-8560. The cashiers check they sent looked incredibly legitimate, with the watermark the heat activated shield and everything, this is the only reason I felt semi-OK depositing it, so be careful. The only thing that caught my attention right away was how instantly eager they were for me to go and buy the products, as well as the paperwork looking slightly unofficial. Seriously thank goodness I didn’t fall for it worse than just depositing the check and didn’t spend anything that first day or at all or things could be a lot worse for me now. I hope they get what’s coming to them.

Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

I received a legitimate looking packet in the mail today to be a Walmart mystery shopper. I saw a large check enclosed and had to think for a second, because I do fill out surveys and get paid for it occasionally. I have never received an amount this large and if I do get paid, it’s usually in gift card form. With some more investigating I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s a SCAM!!! PLEASE DO NOT CASH a check similar to this one!!!

A few weeks ago, I filled out an online survey from a business I frequent. The survey was through MailChimp or some other survey software I recognized and felt to be legitimate. The survey asked me if I'd be willing to take other random surveys, which I agreed to, and one of the survey questions was whether I'd be willing to be a mystery shopper. I said yes. Today I received in the postal mail an envelope with the return address of "Carrie Vallone, 6218 N. 41st St, McAllen, TZ 78504 and which appeared to be personal mail. I opened it to find a "BancorpSouth" check made out to me for $2850., a cover letter on ostensibly Walmart stationery with numerous grammatical errors and instructions to deposit the check in my personal account and to send a photo of my deposit receipt and then go to Walmart (no store specified) and purchase $2500 worth of gift cards and keep $350 for myself. Letter purported to be from a "Mr. Larry James, MBA" who is the "Survey Coordinator/Consumer Protections LCC at email [email protected] and phone number

I called this number thinking it was Walmart help center. He said he was. I told him my problem with my order he said he would refund the cost to my account. I didn’t give him my account details. He then wanted to know how I paid for it. I told him credit card I gave him no details. He then tells me to go to my nearest Walmart and buy a $50 gift card. When I said no he then got nasty. I hung up on him.

at least 2 times weekly for the last 6 weeks I have gotten email notice of "my Walmart account was used to make an order " that could be picked up in 4 hours", OR ..."for a gift of $200" ..."if I did not make the order follow us (sic) immediately and click here to cancel..." oddly enough after many of these on and on I STILL do not have any Walmart account so I am just really not sure whose account they are talking about but it isn't mine, nor anyone else's I fear. please do not fall victim to this nonsensicle and ridiculous scam!

Total money lost $100
Type of a scam Employment

I received a packet, priority mail, that had a survey with instructions on it for a Secret shopper at Walmart. Included is a check for $2,850 and instructions to deposit the check immediately into my bank account. Then I was supposed to go ASAP to Walmart to purchase 3 iTunes gift cards for $100.00 each, 3 money orders for $750.00 each and then the other $300 was supposed to be my pay.

I texted the number and the guy told me to hurry, ASAP to the bank and then text him as soon as I got to the parking lot at Walmart. I got the gift cards, but I did not peel the number like they told me to.

About 5 days after the fact, my Credit Union called to tell me that the check was a fake.

Honestly, I am not sure how I got this in the first place. I was looking for part-time jobs and doing some random inquiries and I thought I may have signed up for something with Wal-Mart. I received an email about being a part-time surveyor for Wal-Mart and they requested some basic information from me so thinking I had applied or asked for more info. I responded. The "Supervisor" said they would be sending me a package in the mail and to be looking for it. I have been a secret shopper before so I thought they were going to send me some Wal-Mart products to try and "survey" the quality of them. However, I received a check for $3,682.42 from APCO Employees Credit Union with the Remitter name: Lisa Baker. I knew at this point it was a scam but I thought I would take it one step further so I could give other people more info. so I proceeded to tell "John Taylor" the recruiting officer I had received the package and ask him what the next step was to move forward. By the way, I also kept the USPS overnight delivery package that did NOT come from a John Taylor or a Wal-mart location but rather had the name and return address as follows:

David Vicari

112 S. 3rd Avenue

Laredo, MO 64652-7102

"John" sent me this email with instructions about depositing the cashier check at my bank and waiting for the funds to be available at my bank and then go ahead with the "evaluation" telling me I would get to keep $400.00 of the money for completing the surveys. And then to transfer the remaining money to:

Tom Parker

11 Avon Street

Malate, Manila


zip code: 1004

Well, as a previously legitimate mystery shopper, I knew that there was NO WAY they would send me that much money or that they would pay me that much money or never talk to me in person. Typically, in my experience, legitimate mystery shopper assignments require you to pay for whatever it is they are asking you to do and then YOU remit receipts to them for reimbursement and a SMALL payment for services. I really couldn't help but laugh when they said I would "evaluate" the Name and "Smartness" of the staff that attended to me and there were three different names, addresses associated with this and NONE of them were associated with Wal-Mart in any way, shape, or form. I REALLY wanted to find a way to continue my investigation on the scammer but didn't think that it would be possible beyond this point. Just KNOW if it sounds too good to be true, IT IS! These desperate, unethical, without values or morals, people should be ashamed of themselves! I pray that no one gets taken by them and I worry about people who don't know better and are in desperate circumstances which is why I wish I could find additional steps to find out more and put an end to this, but sadly because it is likely someone in another country (the only kind of truth here) scams like this will continue. :(

Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

My wife received a text message asking her to sign up as a mystery shopper on a website ( We received a check for $1850.50 from which we are told to deposit in the bank, keep $350.50 for ourselves, and then buy $1500 of Walmart gift cards. She was instructed to scratch off the area revealing the code and send pictures to a number.

I see other scams along these lines on the internet. The check is not real. There's no watermark when held up to light. I've attached images of the letter and check that she received.

I was trying to get help with my voice mail from xfinity, and they referred me to their xfinity Mobile help number. I dialed the number I had written down: 888.936.9468 and got a recorded message that said that all operators were busy but I was eligible for a free $100 Walmart gift card if I was interested. Someone came on the line and wanted to send me this gift card, but I needed to pay $4.95 shipping. I hung up, but I assume they next would have asked for my credit card information.

I got online and found that two of the digits in the number I had written down were transposed: xfinity Mobile's help number is actually 888.936.4968 The scammers appear to be targeting xfinity Mobile customers. I reported this when I called in and suggested that they block this number in their system, as it is targeting their customers, and was told there was nothing they can do, that my best course of action would be to report this to the BBB.
