Secret Shopper Scam Involving Walmart and Western Union
August 06, 2012

Another secret shopping scam!  This email invites you to give your information out to obtain a “job” and then “secret shop” Walmart’s Western Union process.  You’ll wire money to these scam artists and never see it or the fee you think you are due for the job.

BBB has reported this scam to Comcast, so they can stop the emails.
