I was called and asked to complete a telephone survey for Walmart. I was told I would get a $10.00 Walmart gift card and a $100.00 gas card immeadiately, within minutes via email, click to redeem. I was told to go to wakanetwork.net website, use my email as ID login and my telephone number as the password to take advantage of other discounts. I had to provide a credit card to cover the processing fee of $2.99 for the gift cards. I have never received a email from this company. As of 09/18/12 my checking account was charged $2.99. I was given the telephone number 877-332-1490 to call and cancel if I didn't want to take advantage of the additonal savings, but could still use the gift/gas card, was told to activate the email first before cancelling. I checked the website and there is a wakanetwork.com website, but found that this has been reported as a scam. So I called the telephone number and spoke to a representative and explained I never received a email to claim my giftcard and that I read about this company being a scam. The lady said they were a legal company and asked that I go to their website with her on the telephone, so I went to the website, she told me log in with my username (email address) and my password was my telephone number. I logged in and found that my account was active and I had the gift card to redeem, but you have to spend money & submit receipts and would get a refund in the mail. I called the number back and told them to cancel this, I was not interested in the program nor wanted to deal with the gift cards, I received a confirmation that my account was cancelled and nothing more would be charged. I also emailed my bank and alerted them to block this company from future transactions just in case.

  • Waka or whatever that business is seems like other businesses that are out there now. Most are really going to come close to you and get you to sign up or answer a survey or buy something.
