Obama campaign not employing widely used credit card address verification system

By

Hmm … via Is There an Obama Donor Scandal?? | The Blog on Obama: White House 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.

    Didn’t the right blogosphere ID this issue in ’08? Maybe the MSM will notice this time???

  2. Can’t blame Soros for not wanting his address all over the place
