    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? Its this http://claim.onlinesurveyoffers.com/SplashPage.aspx?g=96f858d0f8514c5285404df0fa0d6c3a&nm=01n7gfr6jrxl&s=CD58182&se=04

    Walmart has a warning on their own website about these type of scams http://walmartstores.com/PrivacySecurity/9309.aspx "Walmart’s practices: * 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 abuse@walmart.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 abuse@walmart.com
