"Walmart Customer Rewards & Offers.......Yes! You’ve won Big" Scam

The email message below, which appears as if it came from Walmart and claims the recipients have won big, is a phishing scam created to harvest personal information and subsequently scam the recipients. The fake message was sent by cybercriminals to trick the recipients into thinking their email addresses have been selected to receive a Walmart Customer Rewards Program prize of thousands of US dollars, and to trick the recipients into sending their personal information.

    I just received an announcement from Rachel Adams, a Walmart Rewards Program Specialist(with a photo of her in the corner) saying I had won $1000. I didn't open the email to see what info they wanted. I do not have a Walmart Rewards card, in any case. Pretty sure this is a scam.

    So what happens if I sent an email back with my address?

      The scammers will start sending you phishing and malicious emails because they now know that your email address is active.
