Obama Campaign Disables Credit Card Verification [again]
PJ Media ^ | 02 April 2012

Posted on 04/03/2012 8:51:08 AM PDT by Lorianne

This video is a follow-up to Adrian Murray’s facebook post over the weekend, in which he says that he donated to the Obama campaign as “Adolph Hitler,” occupation “Dictator” living at a German address. As you can see in the clip, citizen journalist George Scaggs of Austin tries the same thing at three different campaign sites, that of Obama, Romney and Santorum. Only the Obama site accepted the donation without the verification number.

Let’s take a look at the three campaign websites mentioned in the video ...

[graphics]

The Obama campaign’s donation page for Americans living outside the US also lacks the security verification code field.

Here’s Mitt Romney’s donation page. I’ve circled the verification number field on it. I would have done the same on Obama’s page, but it wasn’t there.

[graphics]

Only the Obama campaign’s web site lacks the security code field. The others require it, and will not accept donations unless the security code and payment information match up.

Obama’s campaign implemented the same lack of verification in 2008, but the mainstream media never called them on it. It appears as though that episode has prompted a repeat in 2012.

I saw the headline and questioned -

is this an article from 2008, or is he doing it AGAIN?

And the latter is true.

Hundreds of thousands of credit cards, worldwide, each donating under the legal reporting limit...

corrupt bass turd.

OK, this on is going out to my list in about 10 minutes.

And I am going to start pinging Drudge if that is worth anything any more.

Then start pinging all the MSM sites with links to the last time little bammy did this.

They did this the last time. Sickening what they get away The election has to be more than a massive, decisive win. Sadly, I think it will be much much closer than that.

Excuse me for being naive and innocent, but why does the FEC allow this stuff? Are they that stacked with communist/democrats?

I have no idea why this is allowed.
I didn’t even know about it happening in 2008 (such was the news blackout ... I don’t miss much).

We need this info to go viral.

“They did this the last time. Sickening what they get away”

WHY NOT??

It’s not like the Mainstream media is going to call them on it. They don’t want to be BOTH unemployed in the Obama economy, and unpopular at the gay bar.

I will say it again:

They don't care.

THEY DON'T CARE.

THEY DON'T CARE!

This was fully well known in 2008. Completely, 100% known and documented. No republicans spoke out. No FEC people spoke out.

NOBODY SPOKE OUT!

If the POS republicans running against him, who are getting SKEWERED, WILL NOT SAY ANYTHING OR MAKE IT A CAMPAIGN ISSUE, WHAT DOES THAT SAY? WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?

This makes me STEAMING, HOPPING MAD.

(BTW, this anger is NOT directed at you, Lorraine...I am just fed up and discouraged.)

As a result, anyone with access to credit card info -in volume- can make a donation.

Say, wasn’t there a security breach at both Visa and MC last month?

I wonder if Obama’s campaign had something to do with the Visa and MasterCard databases getting compromised the other day.

Pinged Drudge with the link.

Does Rush have the same “tip” function?

BTW, just a suggestion, don’t ping any of the commie donk sites, they might switch the security back on. Let’s get one of the big names/big audience to run a test on it and see for themselves.

Everybody better check their statements carefully, LOL!

Imagine the horror of discovering you had inadvertently contributed even a couple of bucks to his campaign!

Yep.

A big one.

1.5 million credit cards have been compromised by a data breach that occurred early March at a credit card processing company.

VISA

The credit card companies will not process the transaction without the security code.

This is however, a good way to make millions of dollars of illegal contributions look like many millions of legitimate credit card contributions that never even went to the credit card company for clearing, and because of the low transaction amount they are not subject to campaign contribution auditing requirements. The cash they already have on hand from Soros or whoever, gets laundered and shows up in the campaign coffers.

Can we just make up a credit card number?

Can we donate $1,000,000,000,000 to Obama?

Uh no. The credit card company doesn’t decide whether you need the CCV (security code). That is at the discretion of the merchant.

The scam is that by not verifying the billing information matches the credit card information a user can make hundreds of donations, each below $200, under made up names. This allows them to circumvent the limits on contributions and the laws against foreign donations.

However it is NOT illegal and does not require any action on the part of Zero’s campaign.

See my post #25. They will indeed be making up credit cards numbers up because there will be no oversight or audit afterwards, and using legit cards numbers without the owners knwoledge will raise problems down the line. They will keep track of their legit credit card donations to be able to produce a sampling and say ‘See, check this random sampling, they are all legitimate!’.

Are you sure about this?
Several articles claim the charges go through.
I have no idea how to verify either claim.

Thanks

IIRC, the FEC decided that in re the 2008 issue, it wouldn’t have changed the election, so no problem. I could be wrong, but that is my memory of it.

Sorry, you’re correct about the CVV, but they could do both scams simultaneously, no? A superficial audit could be responded to with a set of unique legit card numbers as proof of legitimacy, while a software program is generating thousands of bogus contributions that never even hit the credit card companies (seems more likely than someone who wants to donate a $100,000 sitting there and making 500 contributions online). Of course a software program could also be set up to make the 500 legit donations.
