Who cares what the scale is called? Look at the chords behind it. It actually depends on the context what it's called and it's just an accidental you are using. You are most likely just playing the chord tones. There's no point in naming a scale when you don't know the context. Different notes have a different function in a different context.
Kind of reminds me of the Fb Mohammed scale lol.

A Minor scale With a major third is a Minor scale that uses a Major 3rd as a passing tone.
Minor scales have 3 differences from Major scales (Natural minor that is):
b3, b6, and b7.
By adding a Major third, you have not created a new scale, you are functionally using the major 3rd as a passing tone for color.
I disagree with everyone else and their evaluation of the scale, because they have changed the tonal center. Even Mixolydian b6, by invoking that, you prioritize the Major 3rd and thus the b3 becomes the passing tone. If you say the notes are the same as in a Mixolydian b6, I'd agree, but the context has changed.
Well then, we are no longer minor, are we?
This is like me saying that C D E F G A B C is F Lydian. It's not.
