Wal-Mart Warns Customers of Phishing Email
Wal-Mart yesterday warned consumers of a bogus phishing email purporting to come from the retailer. The fraudulent email looks like a confirmation of a purchase made on Walmart.com, but is actually an attempt to gather personal information from the recipients, the retailer said in a statement. "This email is not from Walmart.com, and it is important that recipients do not click on any links in the email or respond in any way," the company said. "We are investigating the source of the email and working with appropriate authorities."
