Walmart Claims Cash Back Scam Is Not True

wallmart_2013One of the most viral posts on Facebook right now is about an alleged “Wal-Mart cash back scam” that claims that cashiers are quietly charging cash back amounts onto customers’ receipts without their knowledge, then pocketing the money. One such post, from a woman named Suzie Shultz, has been shared more than half a million times, and hundreds are warning each other about avoiding these situations by taking a closer look at receipts after checking out.

It turns out this so-called “scam” actually dates back to chain e-mails in 2004 and has popped up and spread wildly every few years since then.
