Don't send any money since it is a scam. The checks do look real but they aren't. If you haven't done the assignment don't. What I would do is call wal-marts corp. headquarters and ask them if they have a fraud investigation department and get the phone # for that and give them a call and ask them if they want the check and if they do follow their directions. If you get any other communications from the scammer just throw them away if they come by mail or block them if they come by email. I am glad you asked questions before it was too late.

Thank you so much for posting such detailed information. This is very helpful when others get the same letter and go to google some of the information in the letter, and then their google search will lead them right here.

clarification: the check you received is real, it more than likely has a valid account number, a valid routing number, and is on real check stock, but given all that it is counterfeit. A counterfeit check can have many "real" characteristics but it is not produced by the rightful owner, this make it counterfeit there is a difference.

If you copied and pasted that letter in your post, there were some misspellings, which is common with these scams.

Thank you for posting this. I just recieved a letter similar to this one yesterday in the mail. Only with different information and the the check was for over $3,900. I was a little wary about it because of the amount, so i used the search engine for the consumer company name and state first. Because the letter address said it was from Dallas, Tx, but the mail came from Canada. Then I did a google search for the telephone number listed in the letter. And came across your posting. I saw the almost the exact same letter :shock: . And joined this group today. I got alot of scam mail and email but this was the first one like this with the money gram . Thank God I did not believe it was true! Someone I know personally over a year or so ago got a different type of money gram letter only saying that they had won money and after they cashed it they almost when to jail. It is good to have groups like this to help people before it's to late. Thank God :D
