In June 2024, scammers posted slideshows on TikTok instructing users to visit 750Review.com for a Walmart product review scam offer. The photo slideshows falsely claimed users could earn a $750 Walmart gift card after leaving a Walmart product review on 750Review.com. Some users likely wondered if the Walmart product review offer via 750Review.com involved a scam or a real and legit offer for the $750 Walmart gift card. However, again, this promotion involved a scam. The offer was scammers’ latest iteration of schemes involving the enticing dollar figure of $750. For example, various Cash App scam offers of $750 circulated online for several years.

In this video, I’ll reveal everything about the $750 Walmart gift card scam and the website 750Review.com. I’ll also include some information about a similar $750 Target gift card scam regarding a purported Target Circle product review offer via 750Circle.com.

$750 Walmart Gift Card Product Review Scam on 750Review.com

The purportedly real $750 Walmart gift card product review offer appearing in TikTok scam videos featured a fake story about a fired worker named KatieJade (@katieilnibi). One post from June 13 earned a staggering 36.5 million views. That post also received over 3.1 million likes, 13,400 comments, 436,800 bookmarks and 87,400 shares. A second post also from June 13 also received 2.1 million views.

The first photo in the slideshow supposedly showed KatieJade working at Walmart. In reality, the woman in the picture had no involvement with the scam. The slide read, “Walmart just fired me because I had to leave to take my boyfriend to the emergency room :)). So now I’m exposing EVERYTHING the higher ups told me not to spread. Deleting this soon.”

The fifth slide featured the supposedly real $750 Walmart gift card product review offer scam claim. It said, “Tons of people use the ‘product review deal.’ They do a Walmart product review for a $750 Walmart gift card. It’s at 750Review.com. Why doesn’t Walmart advertise this more?”

The post’s text caption also read, “WALMART FIRED ME LOL #walmart #walmartemployee.”

TikTok videos claimed users could complete a Walmart product review on 750Review dot com or 750Review.com to earn a $750 Walmart gift card.
Scammers promoted this fake offer on TikTok. The pictured woman had no involvement with the scam.

Scammers often share fake stories about employees who claimed their company fired them, supposedly leading them to decide to give up company secrets. These TikTok posts about a $750 Walmart gift card simply existed as the latest such scheme promoted online.

$750 Target Gift Card Scam on 750Circle.com

In other scammy TikTok videos similar to those offering the $750 Walmart gift card, which was not real, a similar photo slideshow promoted a Target Circle product review offer promising a $750 Target gift card via 750Circle.com. The slideshow displayed a picture of a worker named Trey with the words, “Just got FIRED from Target having to go home to take my dog to the emergency vet. So now I’m exposing everything I was told to keep my mouth shut about.”

The fifth slide read, “You can do a Target Circle product review at 750Circle.com for a $750 Target gift card. They don’t advertise this ever.”

TikTok videos claimed users could complete a Target Circle product review on 750Circle dot com or 750Circle.com to earn a $750 Target gift card.
An easily-earned $750 gift card is simply never going to happen. It’s too good to be true.

Information About 750Review.com and 750Circle.com

According to a WHOIS domain name search on GoDaddy.com, an unknown person registered 750Review.com on May 8, 2024. It’s unclear if scammers promoted offers via that website in addition to the one for the $750 Walmart gift card product review. A search for 750Circle.com displayed a registration date of June 25, 2024.

Upon visiting 750Review.com, the website redirected me to awesomedealsfinder.com, a website purportedly operated by gonitromedia.com. The website 750Circle.com also redirected me to awesomedealsfinder.com. Neither website led to a legitimate offer of completing a Walmart product review or a Target Circle product review for a $750 gift card.

I strongly advise readers not waste time with awesomedealsfinder.com. Awesomedealsfinder.com reminded me of survey scam websites.

A Word About Survey Scam Websites

Generally, survey scam websites make a lot of promises and simply end up wasting users’ time. The websites ask users to complete a seemingly endless number of surveys. The scheme also continually redirects people from domain to domain.

After spending several minutes or hours on the surveys, readers might find it difficult to keep track of which websites they visited. That’s a problem, especially when some survey scam websites request users’ personal information. In some cases, the websites also request users provide a credit card number to sign up for “free trial” services.

The Scammers’ Goal

From what I can gather, the likely goal of the scammers who registered 750Review.com and 750Circle.com was to gather commission fees. Here’s my guess: The person or people who posted the TikTok photo slideshows promising a $750 Walmart gift card hoped users visited 750Review.com. They hoped users spent at least several minutes wasting their time filling out surveys and providing personal information and financial data. Some of the offers presented to users displayed tiny text saying the websites would provide users’ submitted contact information to third-party companies for marketing purposes.

Generally, it’s also possible the same person or people who create survey scam websites also market their scams, whether as TikTok videos or other methods, while pretending to be affiliates.

For any readers unfamiliar with affiliate marketing, I define the marketing method as when people not directly involved with a company sign up for the company’s affiliate program and attempt to make commission off of sales of that company’s products.

Readers should be cautious if they ever see further promises of surveys involving a Walmart product review or Target Circle product review. File away the idea of easily receiving a $750 gift card for anything in the “too good to be true” folder. If an online offer seems too good to be true, it probably is.

Quick Story About Falsely Blaming Affiliate Marketers

Separate from the subject in this article, I once wrote an article on another website about YouTube ads making several false claims about a medicinal product. By medicinal product, I mean a bottle of supposed weight loss pills. I won’t name names.

Upon finding a way to contact the company owning the medicinal product, a spokesperson for the company became quite angry and defensive. They apparently did not like the fact someone contacted them to question their scam. The spokesperson claimed an affiliate marketer was to blame for the scammy video appearing in YouTube ads. Then, around two or three years later, I found proof the company likely created the scammy YouTube ad. I always thought they did but did not gather proof until that later point in time.

Blaming affiliates seems to be a strategy for a lot of scammy companies. After all, all a company has to do is claim to you they removed the policy-violating affiliate marketing person from their affiliate program. Then, they can thank you for helping to find the scammy ad. In reality, though, nothing changed and the scam continues.

Scammed? Here’s What You Should Do

If any readers fell for this scam involving a $750 Walmart gift card, $750 Target gift card or any other scams involving the giving away of financial information, contact that financial institution. For example, if a reader submitted credit card information, contact the credit card company.

Further, file fraud reports with the FBI, FTC and other organizations.
