The "Walmart Order Cancellation" Scam

This is because cybercriminals are sending out fake and phishing Walmart emails to their potential victims claiming they have bought something from Walmart. The emails then claim the potential victims should click a link in the same email if they didn't make the order.

    Just had a similar problem with FedEx. They have an email address to forward this type of suspicious email to. Does WalMart have an email address to send these fallacious emails to.
