Walmart gift cards - scam

A few weeks ago on the local news a report was made that people in the California area had been experiencing their walmart gift cards at the register marked at zero. It seems that customers who purchased the gift card have been having their balances stolen before they even make their purchase.

I did read from another source is that many of these walmart cards have a code on the back and thats how they are able to retreve the funds. I'm not sure exactly how its done but beware.

The purpose of this post is to warn you to keep your reciept even when you give this gift card as a gift. If not you will be out 100s of dollars and a very sad kid wanting to buy the latest game.

This is where I found the walmart card scam
