Walmart / 1000 Dollar Gift Card

gift card

Complaint Rating:  71 % with 427 votes
Contact information:
walmart
United States
I received an email from Wal-Mart Notice<Wal-MartNotice@eredshank2.net> The notice said I had received a $1000.00 gift card from walmart. This came after I had filled out a survey. I also received one from someone else saying I had won a lap top computer. ( this one I didn't open ) . I am sure this may be plishing. Now what do I do to stop this from affecting my computer or my identity?

I teach high school, seems I'm mistaken that this generation is smarter than then next upcoming younger generation. Idiots!

Walmart is not the scammer! It is phishing or false advertising from 3rd parties. Walmart makes enough money why would they bother putting their cash cow on the chopping block with a $1000 giveaway (which is not even sound business practice... giving away money)

If you feel you have a legitimate grievance, find out where the company is based that is scamming you, contact the Better Business Bureau of that area and maybe also the state attorney general.

If you are in another state from that business, it is now federal jurisdiction and would fall under that state's attorney generals office and the federal trade commission.

I've used all three in the past, it always yielded positive results. Now, how to do this? We are all adults here, I'm not your babysitter. Figure it out, it simple survival skills of the 20th and 21st centuries; knowing who the authorities are.

if this is, in fact, a scam, I garuntee that Wal-Mart didn't have anything to do with it. For one a person has to look for a motive. Do you think that walmart would need to do such a thing? Why would walmart want to soil their public image just to piss off a few nobodies and recieve little to no cash doing it? Even if it was about money, walmart doesn't have the need to do such a thing. Please consider these things before you accuse a nationally renowned company of a scam. Scammers have been known to used the names of large companies to gain the trust of the Mark for years. The idea of computers and internet have made it so that a nobody can steal a companies graphic and con other people into investing in their claims.

If Wallmart is not involved in this $1, 000. gift card scam, they should do something about the scam using their name. It only hurts their reputation. Why have they done nothing about this if they are not involved in it.

My wife and I never recieved the certificate or the stuff we had to order to get approved. My cocern is that these companies are still allowing it to happen. They must be fully aware of all of the "free offers", also relizing there must be a company behind it. I was scammed thinking I got hired overseas, and the company took care of the conning parties pretty darn quick. You would think Wal-Mart would do the the same thing, regaurdless of who the con artist is, if Wal-Mart isn't helpig they are part of the problem. I talked to a lady in a corporate office somewhere and they are fully aware, although this person took the standpoint of thinking it was a real promotion too. So where does the buck get passed now. I'm tempted to go to the FBI, of course if I did this scam to feed my 3 kids I would end up in prison. At least I have the integrity not to do such things. As far as these people calling everyone names for even trying this, those people need to quit posting things because this is a seriouse thing. If anyone REALLY gets the gift card please post it I am interested to see the ourcome. My advise would be, proceed cautiously, I recieved a letter saying I was hired overseas and had to send all of my personal info to this company. This was all through a legitimate website where thousands of people post resume's. My point is that I am educated, with a military background and even attend city meetings in my town, if it can happen to me it can happen to anybody.

The offer is absolutely legitimate -- I've received the money myself. Of course, it's not as easy as promoted, you will be spammed, but SO WHAT? Would you turn down something like $850.00 because you're afraid of spam? Ever hear of setting up an alternate email account for free (like at Yahoo.com?). If you're smart about it, practice a bit of care and can follow directions, you'll receive the card for an outlay of around $150.00. Plus, many of the offers are nice -- Gevalia tea, anyone? If you'd like to do it right and reap the rewards, check out "Secrets of the $1000 Wal-Mart Gift Card" on e-bay. It's the best $5.00 you'll ever invest!

The SCam is not wal-mart but your personal information and email address. I got mine last summer from my online bank, which was like all of us, "I had WON" a $1000 Wal-Mart gift card, I started to do the requirements and half way through I realized I was never getting a card, I called my bank to complainand of course they had no idea, my mistake my fault my virus, I ran a virus scam and all is well except, i did send some info out and I receive 75 spam / junk email a day now, i will have to change my email address, but what upsets me is having my info selling to however
