TOWN OF LOCKPORT — A Creekview Drive resident told Niagara County Sheriff's deputies that he had received a letter alleging that he owed Walmart more than $350 and gave an address to send the money to.

The man told police that the letter requested payment of $351.23 for a purchase made online from The letter stated "our records indicate that you received but were not charged for merchandise from order number 2677190802644 during a recent visit to

The man told patrol that he has never purchased any products from He added that his sole credit card did not show any fraudulent charges or usage. The man contacted Walmart regarding the suspicious letter and was advised by Walmart staff that the letter did not appear to be sent by Walmart. 

The fake gave an address that was very similar to what Walmart officials say is the correct address for Walmart's asset recovery department, using a PO box in the same same St. Louis post office as the real asset recovery department.

A Walmart employee told patrol that the Walmart Asset Protection Recovery department does not deal with non-payment of merchandise issues. The local Walmart store was provided a copy of the letter received by the complainant and told patrol that they would forward the letter for further investigation by Walmart.
