The "Your Walmart Account was Use to Make an Order" Phishing Scam

The "Your Walmart Account was Use to Make an Order" email below, which claims the recipients' Walmart accounts have been used to make an order, are asked not to click on the links in them. 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.
