If Walmart Sends You a Check, Whatever You Do, Don’t Cash It

There is a new scam going on at Walmart.  Well, not at Walmart, but about Walmart.  First, you get what appears to be a Walmart check.  The usual amount is running about $1900.  It has all the markings that a real Walmart check would have right down to the logo.  Then they try to get your banking information.

 Everyone dreams about the day when they suddenly strike it rich. Whether your windfall comes from finally winning the lottery or receiving inheritance from a long-lost relative, when you’re struggling to make ends meet, any promise of “free money” is a godsend.

Unfortunately, the world rarely works that way. Most of the time, if you want to become wealthy, it takes hard work, intelligence, and more than a little bit of good luck.

So when one woman received a check for almost $2,000 from Wal-Mart, she thought that the universe was finally working out in her favor. Sadly, that was not the case… and it nearly ruined her life.

It all seemed to be legitimate… that is, until she called her daughter, who warned that she should research the award before she made her next move. As the old saying goes, “if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.”

Sure enough, after a little digging, Brenda learned that it was a total scam—and she wasn’t the only one who nearly fell for it. Many people had been tricked into providing private information, only to see their bank accounts completely drained. That’s enough to ruin a life! Thankfully, Brenda learned about the scam online, and never provided her bank information.
