Obama Campaign Not Using Verification System

Whitehouse Dossier

The Obama campaign is not employing the widely used credit card address verification system to check whether the address submitted by a donor matches the address tied to the credit card, an omission that might allow supporters to use a fake identity when contributing.

The practice could potentially allow donors in possession of illicitly obtained credit card numbers to exceed the campaign limit, and to permit overseas supporters to contribute.

The Mitt Romney campaign does require use of the system and asks the donor to include the three or four numbers- sometimes known as the “CVV” code – on the back of the card. The code helps determine whether the donor is in possession of the card.

The Obama campaign donor page does not have a box for entering the CVV code and does not appear to reject donors who lists addresses different from those attached to the cards.

    “The practice could potentially allow donors in possession of illicitly obtained credit card numbers to exceed the campaign limit, and to permit overseas supporters to contribute.”

    “Could potentially allow” ?? That is undoubtably the intention.

    Additionally it would allow the Oblowhard Campaign to pretend it is incapable of reimbursing unknown contributors who had made illegal contributions.

    Why would they bother to steal all those numbers the other day, and then not use them?

    Same as last time. He didn’t get into any trouble after the last election, so why not keep up the same shady practice??

    Don’t forget, when you enter the CVV code, it is NOT stored along with the credit card number. It is just used as verification and not kept. So this means that Obama can charge the same credit card as often as he likes, but just use a different name each time. And voila! — one person can now donate over their lawful limit.

    I’m sure this has nothing to do with the completely unrelated cases of MASSIVE identity theft occurring recently!!!

    Just be sure to check your monthly statements to be sure you aren’t making contributions to Barry’s quest for reelection.

    Now it makes perfect sense why they keep asking for 2 and 3 dollar donations….
