Consumer Protection warns of fake gift card

The Utah Department of Commerce announced that the Division of Consumer Protection is warning Utah consumers about a scam text involving Walmart gift cards. Residents have reported receiving text messages on their cell phones claiming that the recipient is the winner of a $1,000 Walmart gift card but need to enter a code word on a website to receive the prize. Division of Consumer Protection investigators looked into the offer and found that once a consumer entered information into the website, it asked the user to download a free software program that would record all keystrokes on a computer. If consumers were to fall prey to the scheme, they would be giving up bank account passwords along with other identifying information through the downloaded software.
