More Fraud and Slimy Practices

Fraudulent credit card charges accepted

Apparently, the AVS security precautions have not been re-enabled at the Obama website, and fake-name donations are still being accepted. But please, stop giving the guys more cash.

As to the argument that all these fake names are checked "offline", the donation below from "Della Ware" has already been withdrawn from her account.

So, just to clarify, the AVS security checks most merchant processors use to screen out fraudulent transactions (and, incidentally, overseas customers) were intentionally disabled by the Obama campaign - and thus their web donation page enables fraudulent (and/or foreign) donations. The McCain campaign retains the AVS system used by other online retailers and thus rejects fake names and fake addresses. Advantage: Obama!

See it played out here, here, here, here, and here.
