The Clinton campaign is routinely charging one time small donors multiple times. Wells Fargo bank is receiving a hundred calls a day from their customers telling them the Clinton campaign is charging them multiple times after what was supposed to be a one time donation.
One elderly small donor has filed a complaint with her Attorney General who has forwarded the complaint to the Federal Election Commission.
Quoting the Wells Fargo fraud department,
“We get up to a hundred calls a day from Hillary’s low-income supporters complaining about multiple unauthorized charges,”
This has been happening since the Spring. The campaign continues to charge these small donors small amounts, always under $100, so it doesn’t alert the fraud department and doesn’t require individual reporting to the FEC,
From the Observer.com,
“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 $1,200 per day.
The fraud specialist said that Clinton donors who call in will attempt to resolve the issue with the campaign first but they never get anywhere. “They will call the Clinton campaign to get their refund and the issue never gets resolved. So they call us and we just issue the refund. The Clinton campaign knows these charges are small potatoes and that we’ll just refund the money back.”
Quite a nice little scheme the Clinton campaign has going. No doubt there are other banks experiencing the same fraudulent charges. No wonder the campaign brags about their small donors! They are repeatedly stealing from those who can least afford it.
