Walmart Marketplace

On May 16th, 2024, Cryptocointrace received notice about a possible scam via its CRM. The FTC also cautioned about this impersonation attempt. Walmart, a legitimate business with several chains is an easy target for scammers. Scammers can be lurking as third-party sellers on the Walmart marketplace and may send emails that appear to be from Walmart urging you to click on links or download attachments. Additionally, they may develop scam websites that closely resemble the real Walmart site, tricking you into entering your personal or payment information. Be cautious of unverified sellers with limited reviews or negative feedback on the Walmart marketplace. 

Shop Directly on Walmart.com and avoid links from unknown sources.

If You Suspect a Scam

  • Report Phishing Emails: Forward suspicious emails claiming to be from Walmart to https://corporate.walmart.com/privacy-security/fraud-alerts.
  • Report Third-Party Seller Issues: If you have an issue with a third-party seller, report it to Walmart customer service.
  • Contact Your Bank: If you believe your financial information has been compromised, contact your bank to report fraud and potentially cancel your credit card.

Additionally, report the scam to Cryptocointrace, an organization dedicated to investigating online scams and tracing lost funds to help victims seek justice.
