Clinton Campaign Caught Stealing Money From Small Donors
The Clinton campaign is making money the old fashioned way. They steal it. No, seriously, they are stealing money from their donors, who will vote for her anyway. It’s gotten so bad that one of the biggest banks in the country say they are getting over 100 calls a day from people whose accounts are being bled dry by Hillary Clinton. The way the scam works is they get someone to donate a small sum of money and now they have their bank information, the keep deducting money from the accounts. One donor gave 10 dollars and the campaign took out four additional payments of 25 dollars each.
KARE 11 in Minnesota has been investigating one case of a woman in Minnesota. 81-year-old Carol Mahre of Maplewood had four payments of 25 dollars each subtracted from her account. After the first two charges, she called the Hillary for America number and after many many calls, someone answered. She said the man was very nice and said he would take care of everything, but instead of returning her 50 dollars they deducted another 50 dollars.
The son said he called over 100 times and got no answer, so he went to the State Attorney’s office and filed a fraud complaint against Hillary for America.
“We get up to a hundred calls a day from Hillary’s low-income supporters complaining about multiple unauthorized charges,” a source, who asked to remain anonymous for fear of job security, from the Wells Fargo fraud department told the Observer. The source claims that the Clinton campaign has been pulling this stunt since Spring of this year. The Hillary for America campaign will overcharge small donors by repeatedly charging small amounts such as $20 to the bankcards of donors who made a one-time donation. However, the Clinton campaign strategically doesn’t overcharge these donors $100 or more because the bank would then be obligated to investigate the fraud.
“We don’t investigate fraudulent charges unless they are over $100,” the fraud specialist explained. “The Clinton campaign knows this, that’s why we don’t see any charges over the $100 amount, they’ll stop the charges just below $100. We’ll see her campaign overcharge donors by $20, $40 or $60 but never more than $100.” The source, who has worked for Wells Fargo for over 10 years, said that the total amount they refund customers on a daily basis who have been overcharged by Clinton’s campaign “varies” but the bank usually issues refunds that total between $700 and $1200 per day.
