    I am glad you posted this!! I received this today, and started filling out the form, but when I got to the part about Acct. info I got my card, and red flags started popping through my head..

    IF it were walmart they would have every single possible place able to hold a link, with it linked to their website. Why would they ever send out an email, without free advertising..

    WISH I would have gotten the free $150. through! SO, there is really no way to track these emails…

    They are sent from There are three websites linked through that email– ,,

    How do you know for sure, that none of these emails are real? Who has actually submitted their info? What can be done? WHATS NEXT?!

    What happened to there is nothing in life that is free.
    If it is free it has no value and free is misleading.
    Free Credit Report ads suck you in then they want 1.00
    What is free here?
    My flags go up when I see the word FREE every time
    But than I am old.

    Umm, anything that wants to put money directly into my account is a sham…I don’t even let my employer do it. Too much of a chance for fraud or screw ups to happen.

    Stephanie, you’re a moron. The mail comes from “” and NEVER should you consider giving your credit or debit card number when requested by email. Not to mention that unless you remember having actually giving Walmart your email address its rather unlikely that they would even have you on file Good job at almost being a victim of identity fraud, you buffoon.
