Well, looks like someone out there is trying the old e-mail phishing scam again. This time it looks like they are trying to pretend to be Walmart.com and attempting to scare people in making them think that they made a purchase. This is what the e-mail looks like:

This one is a little more apparent that it is illegitimate as they try to get you to go to a misspelled domain called “Wallmart.com” as opposed to “Walmart.com.” As usual, I’m sure someone out there may have fallen for it so be sure to just dump it in the trash.
