A link is being shared that claims you have been given a $250 gift card to Walmart, but is it true?
It says all you have to do is click on the link to start the so-called verification process.
Our Verify Team took a closer look, and here’s what we found:
- According to Charles Crowson, a senior manager at Walmart, there are no promotions or incentive programs that lead to a gift card.
- In fact, these types of scams are so common that Walmart has created a page on its website to help viewers spot all these fakes.
- And from the tech experts we talked to, this one looks like one of those phishing scams where hackers are trying to get your info when you click on a verification link.
In conclusion, we can verify this Walmart gift card promotion is too good to be true and a fake.
