Walmart has a warning on their own website about these type of scams

walmartstores.com/PrivacySecurity/9...
"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
