Better Business Bureau of Minnesota and North Dakota is warning area consumers to watch out for a scam involving a postcard purportedly alerting recipients to 'an unclaimed reward of $100 in gift savings good at Walmart or Target.'
The mail piece does not have a return address but directs people to call a phone number to claim their supposed prizes. BBB is advising the public to either shred these mailings or report them to the FTC (877-382-4357), your local post office or both.
Some notifications have been delivered via text message and others through email. People may also receive phone calls claiming they're the recipient of such prizes. In every case like this to date, Target and Walmart headquarters have stated these postcards/communiqués were not issued by them.
