Several local police agencies are issuing a heads up to residents thinking they’ve got a good deal. According to reports, scammers are sending out checks that claim to be from Wal-Mart web control to reimburse residents for a special purchase or to offer free money to spend in their area stores. The checks are coming from banks that don’t exist anymore or aren’t in the area. Once the residents cash the check, they immediately give their information to the person tracking the check. If you receive a check like this, it’s recommended you simply throw it out.
