According to WSAZ, Berry of Braxton County, W.Va., received a check for $1,892.35 — that appears to be from Wal-Mart — along with a letter asking her to be a secret shopper for the retailer. Berry tells reporters, “When I saw the check, I was like woo-hoo. I was excited. It’s $1,800 dollars. Everyone can use $1,800 dollars.”
The check looked legitimate, down to the painstakingly forged signature of Jeff Davis, Wal-Mart senior vice president, finance and treasurer. Berry was not convinced, however, and spoke with her daughter for a second opinion.
