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