Free $1,000 walmart gift card? A scam?
I was going to go to walmart.com but then it lead me to this site where it says i was a 'walmart california winner' or whatever. Its walmart so it seems kinda real, but then i believe its a scam. Does anyone know if its real or fake?
Walmart has a warning on their own website about these type of scams
* Walmart does not solicit online for individuals to complete online surveys for gift cards, nor do we send unsolicited emails asking individuals to participate in our surveys.
* Walmart does not endorse and is not affiliated with any "sponsor offer" related program or survey;
* Walmart will never send you e-mails or surveys that are contingent on your making purchases, subscriptions, or fulfilling other financial requirements;
* Drawings for the receipt survey occur four times a year. Winners of the register receipt gift card are notified by certified mail, never via email.
How to protect yourself:
* Don’t open or respond to unsolicited e-mails offering free gift cards;
* Don’t click on or respond to online ads or websites offering free gift cards;
* Pay attention to the website URL. If the URL does not match the branding to a legitimate website navigate away from the website.
To report suspected Gift Card Sponsor Offer scams:
If you suspect you have been directed to a phony website claiming to be connected with Walmart, please send an e-mail with the link to email@example.com. The e-mail abuse team will then work with authorities to put an end to the particular scam."
So forward anything you received to firstname.lastname@example.org
Look at tha addres. It is NOT Walmart, it is "onlinesurveyoffers.com
Sound like a scam to me.
Why would someone give you a $1000.00 gift card?
It is fake.
