I donated as Don Corleone -- $2.00 (they wouldn't let me contribute $1.00, it had to be at least two bucks). Don Corleone, 666 Godfather Way, Sleeps with the Fishes, NY, 10001. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Credit card fraud was rampant, with John Galt, Saddam Hussein, Osama Bin Laden, and Bill Ayers all making contributions. A number of Atlas readers and FB friends have advised me that the credit card fraud is in full swing again. Adrian Murray went to barackobama.com and donated $3 using the name Adolph Hitler, 123 Nuremburg Way, Berlin, Germany, and for good measure put in Dictator of Nazi Party as employer. Got an email back saying Dear Adolph, Thank you for your generous donation….
The stupidity is breaktaking!
Listen up, Doofus, if you give your own real credit card number, it is not fraud if they accept it! If you use someone else's credit card, then YOU are committing fraud, not the party that accepts the payment. Giving a fake name while using your own credit card is just...well it's just plain stupid. And how would you know what the automated email being sent back says, unless you used a real (albeit throwaway) email address to receive it?
