Walmart Fraud Alert!!!

Hello all -
I am doing an early post to alert to you a scam that will make your life miserable.

It will say it is from Wal-mart and the subject line is: You have been selected.

When you open it, the header will look official with the official Walmart logo. This is the text in the email.

"You have been chosen by Walmart to take part in our Customer Satisfaction Survey.If you decide complete this survey, Walmart will send $150 to your confirmed Credit or Debit Card Account – Just for your time.Helping us better understand how our customers feel, benefits everyone. With the information collected we can decide to direct a number of changes to improve and expand our services.
The Survey form is attached to this email. Please download the attachment, open it, and follow the instructions on your screen.

Walmart, as the party who controls the data collected in this survey, may use your responses together with data it has about you to ensure its products and services meet your needs. Walmart will treat data collected from you in accordance with the Walmart privacy policy.

Then when you open it up, it asks a few questions and then asks for your personal credit care information including pin so that you can get paid $150. Here is more info. about it on a site reporting the fraud:
