Email scam

Postby CarolC » Sun Dec 07, 2014 9:24 pm

Below is a copy of an email that was in my Inbox this evening.
The subject was "Thank you for buying from Walmart" which looks like it might possibly be something real, except that Walmart doesn't have my email address.
No idea what happens if you click the link, nothing good I'm sure. :roll:

I know that I'm reviving an old topic, but I've received the same email. Luckily, I did not click on the link, but it does look real. I haven't ordered anything from Walmart for the last couple of months so I know it is a scam.
