I don’t even have a walmart account

Dear Customer,

It has come to our attention that someone gained access to your Walmart.com user name and password. To prevent fraudulent activity, we have locked your account and deleted your saved payment information. As a result of this action, you will soon receive an email with the subject “Your Walmart.com account information has been updated.”

Your privacy and trust is very important to us. We utilize a variety of services to help identify Walmart.com customer accounts, such as yours, that may have been compromised or are susceptible to fraud. We have investigated this issue and have found no indication of a security breach in our systems. It’s possible that someone obtained your account information through a phishing scam, malware on your computer or another outside source.

To ensure no unauthorized activity occurred before we were able to lock your account, please take the following steps:

1. Unlock your account by resetting your password with the following link:

2. Sign in to Walmart.com and check your order history to see if any unauthorized orders were placed.

3. If you see any suspicious activity, please call us immediately at (866) 625-0507.

Please note: The payment information that can be viewed in your Walmart.com account is limited to your billing address and the last 4 digits and expiration dates of your credit cards, which should not be enough to use your credit card information for payments outside of Walmart.com. However, we recommend keeping an eye on your credit card statements for any unusual activity.

If you have the same login information for accounts outside of Walmart.com, we recommend changing your passwords at these sites as well. We also recommend that you install and run security software to check your computer for infections and be wary of any emails asking for passwords or other personal information. You should also change all passwords on a regular basis, and use different passwords for each of your various accounts.

A Runescape phishing scam

Dear Player,

We have collected convincing evidence that you have tried to trade your RuneScape account or sell your virtual items outside of the RuneScape game environment.

Such real-world trading has a major negative impact on the economy of RuneScape and is in violation with our policies. Therefore any player that continues to engage in the illegal activity has no place in our community.

All of your accounts are now on our watch-list and will be automatically monitored for real-world trading. Regardless of who you are or how long you’ve been with us, if you continue to real-world trade we will have no hesitation in: (1) permanently banning your RuneScape account, and (2) naming you as a defendant in Jagex Limited vs you, which is a lawsuit based on antitrust law violations that is currently pending in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California (Civ. Action No. SANC-V13-00342-CGH).

If you decide to ignore this email and instead continue Real-World Trading, we (Jagex Ltd) reserve our rights to pursue statutory damages against you for between $200 to $2,500 per act of past, present, and/or future real-world trading in accordance with 19 U.S.C. 1307(c)(3).

In addition, we have temporarily changed your RuneScape account’s status.

Please fill in the following security form to monitor your account’s status or to appeal the infractions which you have received:
Link removed

 Please note: Due to recent technical problems with our automated detection systems, some accounts have been unfairly punished. Most of the void infractions should have been removed. Please visit the appeal section to appeal any unjustified infractions received due to system errors.

Sincerely,
Mod Mark.
