In a world where scams are rampant, one is not. If you have received a refund check from Walmart, you may want to hold on to it. 

The retail giant recently sent out checks for over payment at Walmart and Sam's Club pharmacies, vision centers, and care clinics. Police in several states initially told consumers not to cash the checks and throw them away. The company has released a statement confirming the checks are indeed real:

“Walmart Global Shared Services is a division of Walmart, Inc and issues refund checks. These checks are over payments for services purchased from the pharmacy, vision center or care clinics in our stores. It’s a refund customers are entitled to receive and should feel assured to cash them,” the statement declared.

If you threw away the check, you can get a new one reissued or if you have questions, you can call 866-788-5580.
