Look Carefully At Your Mail, If You Get A Check Like This From Walmart Here’s What It Means

It is one of the most shopped retailers in the world — especially at this time of year. Love it or hate it, we’ve all been there. Yes, I’m talking about Walmart.
But shoppers should beware because thugs have come up with a scheme that could truly ruin people’s lives if they are not careful.
An Illinois sheriff’s department is reporting that a new Walmart scam has been on the loose in their area. First, a person receives a letter in the mail, like the one below, along with a check. The letter allegedly informs the person that they have been accepted into the “Quality Control” program from Walmart and informs the person of their ‘responsibilities’.

Along with the letter is a check that supposedly needs to be activated by using a supplied user ID and password. Once the check is activated, the person is to deposit the check into their bank account to begin shopping and participating in the program.

But it’s a scam! Once the person deposits the check into their account, the scammers drain their bank account.

Be sure to warn your friends and family that if any of you receive this letter in the mail, throw it away and DO NOT deposit the check!
