    Consumers are being warned about an uptick in the number of fraudulent purchases being made at Walmart, which in some cases has resulted in their financial institution moving to deny debit card transactions unless a PIN is used.

    The alerts started to circulate earlier this summer, but the number of incidents has remained steady in some parts of the U.S.

    In all, there have been alerts issued for 16 states and Walmart has been named as the location where the compromised cards were being used.
