Beware of Walmart Scam Text Message

I’m sure you are like many people and have search online for some great deals this holiday season.   I bet you have even purchased items from Walmart.com, so be aware if you get a text message claiming to come from Walmart regarding the chance to get $100 gift card. As I took advantage of Cyber Monday, of course I bought items from Walmart.com.   A couple days later, I received a text message claiming to be from Walmart reading ‘Thank You For Shopping At Walmart’.  The message said I should go to a website and claim a $100 Walmart card for free.

Be aware.. according to a Walmart spokesperson , the text message is not coming from Wal-Mart, and that the website and deal that it mentions do not sound legitimate.

If you get the text, or become a victim of a scam, please contact the New York State Attorney General or Better Business Bureau.
