I haven't. What did the letter say? Why would Walmart be sending you a check?

I took it to the bank who told me to give it to Walmart. They did not recognize it so I tore it up

Very simple...if you had worked for them and they sent you a check..ok..BUT you're acting like you don't know why you've received a check from wal-mart...so then it must be a scam since it seems like you never worked for them and out of the blue you're getting a check...so it sounds like a scam to me...

I would be extremely suspicious and extremely cautious. If it's "too good to be true" .... enough said.

Good luck.

Default SAM's Check

I got a check from SAM's/Wal-Mart and it has to be cashed at SAM's. It is from using their credit card.
