Two days later, I received a phone call and 3 text messages advising me to go back to Walmart and change the receiver’s name to a different name, Kehinde Y Balogun. The Indian man who called me said he was Richard Brooks. Of course, at that point, I didn’t believe any of it. I told him that I would email the company and ask them first before I did anything. I immediately hung up, emailed the original sender, did a search (which I should’ve done initially, I know), a Google search and realized the only way to un-scam myself was to go back to Walmart, re-wire the money back to myself, seeing as the receiver obviously hadn’t withdrawn it on their end in Texas (if they were calling and texting me to change the name of the receiver from Richard Brooks to Kehinde Y Balogun instead). So, I’m depositing the cash I got back from Walmart back into my bank account tomorrow and when the money order bounces in a few days/weeks, I’ll at least have the money there in my bank for them to take back (minus the bounced check charge).The other phone number that I received a text from today: 510-462-2731
