Earlier this month, the giant retailer announced it would price match select retailers including Amazon, meaning if you found a price for your item cheaper online, you could bring in a screenshot and Wal-Mart would match the price.
Unfortunately, there were those that took advantage of the vague wording by Wal-Mart and made fake Amazon sales pages offering the PS4, Xbox One and other big ticket items for cheap, even under $100.
The scam forced Walmart to update the policy, eliminating third-party vendors, marketplace vendors or auction sites from price match.
"We can't tolerate fraud or attempts to trick our cashiers," Wal-Mart said, in a statement. "This kind of activity is unfair to the millions of customers who count on us every day for honest value."
