Scammers are getting better and better at using technology and advanced methods to try and take what’s not theirs, it’s important to be aware of all of the cons that are taking place RIGHT NOW!
Walmart is the latest ploy being used to deceive people. Many of us shop there and many of our neighbors, too. Scammers are sending out checks that look like they are from Walmart letting the target know that they’ve been accepted into Quality Control. The checks are often for more than $1000. Along with the check is a letter explaining how to cash it at the bank. As soon as the victim has followed the instructions with the bank, the account is free and open to the criminals.
The very worst thing about this is that it preys mostly on people who are likely to need money, the poorest in society. They are the ones who will rush to the bank and maybe not take a moment to consider the implications. It’s wrong and it’s sick. Taking money from poor families because this scum can’t be bothered to get out and make their own.
Let your friends and family know about this scam, and please don’t get caught out. If a check turns up that you’re not expecting, take it to the place that issued it and make sure it’s legit.
Walmart has gotten a reputation as one of the most trusted retailers in the world, but they are under heavy fire after a new scheme was launched.
The Illinois Sheriff’s Department has just issued a warning to the public about a new scheme where a victim receives a letter in the mail with a check.
The letter reportedly tells the recipient that they have been accepted into the “Quality Control” at Walmart. It goes on to inform them of their new “responsibilities.”
The check included requires activation with a user id and a password which is supplied in the letter.
Once the recipient tries to deposit it into their bank account, the thugs responsible have access to their bank account.
Be sure to share this with family and friends! We do not want these thugs getting their hands on any more cash at the expense of innocent Americans.
