Hi everyone. I am not trying to thread-crap, but wanted to warn everyone so hopefully this won't happen to you...
This morning (05/06/13) at like 3:30am, someone changed my info on my walmart.com account (I got an email stating the info had been changed), and a charge of about $99 was charged to my credit card on file with walmart.com (NOT a walmart credit card - it was one of the major credit cards). I looked online and sure enough, there was a pending charge on my credit card. So I called my credit card company and they said they have been having a whole lot of fraud calls about walmart.com. So of course, they cancelled the charge and are sending me a new card with new account number.
Then, once the walmart customer service line opened (8am central time), I called them and had them delete my account and all credit card info. She wouldn't say if they had been having a lot of fraud. She just kept telling me to make sure the charge didn't post on my credit card. I told her that was already taken care of.
That was the gist of my conversations. So I am not sure if it is a good idea to even have a walmart.com account. If you want to heed my warning, call 1-800-walmart and follow the prompts and tell them you want your account cancelled all together.
Hope no one else has to deal with this issue.
Sorry OP, but I have been through identity theft about 12 years ago and it is a royal pain to have to deal with and STILL affects any large purchase I try to make now (like major appliances, etc.). Just want my fellow SDers to be informed!
EDIT: Someone reminded me that you can purchase on the walmart site as a guest. So I wanted to edit my post to say I would suggest to everyone DO NOT make an account. Just purchase as a guest so your account info can't be stolen.
