The Dubuque Police Department is warning people about an email phishing scam that's making the rounds.

They say they've received complaints concerning a spoofed email sent from someone claiming to be Walmart.

According to police, it's different from the typical spam in that the graphics and logo are well spoofed. 

Even though the email is not from Walmart, the email lists the message source as "wallmart.mail.com" as opposed to Walmart's actual website, walmart.com.

Police also say the link on the email to report spam actually goes to a malware/phishing site.

If you have received this or any other scam emails, authorities say not to click on any links or respond in any way to the sender.
