The link in the fake email goes to a fake Walmart website (order-checkout.info) that will ask visitors to sign-in with their Walmart account credentials. Now, any attempts to sign into the fak website will result in the visitors Walmart account credentials being sent to the cybercriminal behind the phishing scam.
