Mystery shopping, sometimes referred to as secret shopping, is where an individual is hired to “act” like a customer, and evaluate services at a business. Walmart does NOT utilize these services or hire associates to perform services on behalf of other retailers or companies. However, scammers take advantage of these types of programs by sending fraudulent solicitations via mail, text, or email to entice consumers to evaluate the retail experience. Often times these offers of employment are accompanied by a fake check made out for a large amount of money or otherwise offer immediate employment with a good salary and minimal effort required.
Never provide personal information in response to an unsolicited request, whether it is over the phone or internet. A trusted company will never ask a customer for highly sensitive information during a call they initiated. A financial institution may ask for the account holder’s partial Social Security Number for verification, but they will never ask for the entire Social Security Number, account number or PIN.
If you want to buy someone a gift but are having trouble figuring out what to get, a gift card can be a great solution. There’s no need to guess what they want: with a Walmart gift card, they can choose whatever their heart desires from our enormous selection of products. Shop gift cards by occasion to find special designs for birthdays, weddings, anniversaries or graduations. Or add a personal touch by choosing a card that reflects the recipient’s interests, whether they’re a fan of sports, cats or cupcakes. Walmart makes gift card giving easy: you can give a traditional physical gift card or order an eGift card, which will appear in the recipient’s inbox.
On or about May 7, 2020, potential prize winners will be selected in a random drawing from all eligible entries received by the Sponsor Representative. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received for the Sweepstakes. By entering the Sweepstakes, Entrants fully and unconditionally agree to be bound by these Official Rules and the decisions of the Sponsor and Sweepstakes Entities, which will be final and binding in all matters relating to the Sweepstakes.
In addition to appearing on Credit.com, our articles are syndicated to dozens of other news sites. We have more than 100 partners, including MSN, ABC News, CBS News, Yahoo, Marketwatch, Scripps, Money Magazine and many others. This network operates similarly to the Associated Press or Reuters, except we focus almost exclusively on issues relating to personal finance. These are not advertorial or paid placements, rather we provide these articles to our partners in most cases for free. These relationships create more awareness of Credit.com in general and they result in more traffic to us as well.
Walmart offers a survey, located at survey.walmart.com, from invitations appearing on receipts in our stores. Customers are offered entry to the survey through register receipts or emails from our survey team, and the survey can only be completed online. The survey participants may choose to enter a sweepstakes which offers five winners a $1,000 gift card every 3 months, and 750 winners a $100 gift card. Winners are notified via phone and certified mail. Gift cards are not given away through Twitter, Facebook, or text message. If you receive a notice through one of these channels, it is likely a scam. Do not click on any links in these messages.
The value associated with the Grand Prize is taxable as income and the Grand Prize winner is solely responsible for any taxes, including, but not limited to all applicable federal, state and local taxes that become due with respect to the value of the Grand Prize. The Sponsor must report the value of the Grand Prize to the Internal Revenue Service in the year the Grand Prize is received by the Grand Prize winner and will be reported to the Grand Prize winner and the Internal Revenue Service in the form of a Form 1099.
FIRST PRIZE: Potential First Prize winners winning a First Prize will be shipped their First Prize within 4 to 6 weeks from the drawing date via the United States Postal Service to the address on file with the Sponsor to the address supplied at the time of entry. In the event the First Prize is returned, the address is insufficient or incomplete for shipping purposes, or undeliverable for any reason, the First Prize winner will be disqualified and an alternate First Prize winner will be selected from the remaining eligible entries received. If the alternate First Prize winner’s First Prize is returned, the address is insufficient or incomplete for shipping purposes, or undeliverable for any reason, the alternate First Prize winner will be disqualified and the First Prize will not be awarded.
In this scam, the scammer will call a victim and indicate that a loved one is in some sort of trouble (i.e. kidnapped, arrested, etc.). Sometimes, the scammer pretends to be a lawyer or the loved one themselves and asks directly for money. The scammer then instructs the victim to purchase gift cards and give the gift card numbers to the scammer over the phone.
“Survey Junkie is a great site and I am still a junky. After receiving just 1000 points you can cash out. You can literally cash out everyday on this site. The have some high rewarding surveys in reasonable amount of time. Once you have been a member a while they really started to qualify me more and more. Maybe other people will experience other success but if you are honest throughout your survey taking you should be able to cash in for Amazon gift cards in no time…” ~ Casey
