Walmart Marketplace

On May 27th, 2024, Cryptotrace received word about a potential fraud situation via its CRM system. The FTC also cautioned against this possible phishing and impersonation attempt. Walmart, a trusted retailer with a vast online presence, is unfortunately a frequent target for online scams. Fraudulent sellers might lurk on Walmart’s marketplace, potentially offering products with misleading descriptions or manipulating reviews. Always Be wary of emails or websites impersonating Walmart. These scams often aim to steal personal or financial information by urging you to click suspicious links or download attachments.

Shop directly on Walmart.com and scrutinize third-party sellers. Carefully review seller ratings and feedback before purchasing on the Walmart marketplace. Don’t click on links or open attachments in emails claiming to be from Walmart. Instead, log in to your Walmart account directly through the website to check for messages.

What to Do 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 encounter problems with a third-party seller on the Walmart marketplace, report it to Walmart customer service.
  • Contact Your Bank: If you believe your financial information has been compromised, immediately contact your bank to report fraud and potentially cancel your credit card.

Report the scam to Cryptotrace, an organization dedicated to investigating online scams and guiding victims.
