    Oh that's just great. I wonder how many small donations ($10, $20) are still being subtracted from accounts unnoticed?

    My husband served as his mother's financial and medical guardian when she developed dementia and needed to live in a home. While going over her accounts one day, I noticed a $9.95 charge that was deducted monthly from her checking account. After a brief research, it turned out that five or six years earlier, she had purchased something that apparently had a scheme just like this one -- not a one-time charge but a monthly one. Because it was just under $10 her bank didn't flag it as a scam. Older ppl often fall prey to this sort of thing. I wasn't "older" at the time but I also caught one of those things, charged to my credit card, that I thought was a one-time charge. Fortunately I stopped it the 2nd month, and was refunded the money.

    Scammers gonna scam, even when ex-#IMPOTUSx2.

    Yes. Isn't it interesting that none of the JPP Cult45 members are defending this?

    They are probably checking their bank records.

    When Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election, he didn’t stop asking his supporters for money. The emails kept coming in. But by the end of his four years in office, according to a new report in The New York Times, they had begun to look an awful lot like a scam.
    By June 2020, the Trump campaign had begun using dark patterns, computer interfaces designed to trick users, to automatically sign up campaign contributors to donate far more money than they had intended — recurring monthly donations, recurring weekly donations, even a one-time surprise “money bomb” — by pre-checking the checkboxes for each option, burying the fine print under paragraphs of bold text, and forcing his supporters to wade through it all and opt out if they wanted to make a simple donation.
    Here’s how bad it got as of October, according to the NYT:
    One Kansas City supporter who donated $500 saw his account tapped for $3,000 that month. Another realized their $990 donation had become $8,000. Banks and a major credit card company told the NYT that processing fraud claims for WinRed, the conservative fundraising site processing these payments, had started to become a significant percentage of their daily workload. A Trump spokeperson admitted at least $19.7 million worth of its transactions had been disputed. And those are just from people who bothered to dispute the charges.
    Technically it's not stealing it's just that his followers are too stupid to read the fine print as usual Trump is betting on the stupidity of his loyalists
    Why Biden? Because Fuck You that's why. Barack Obama has a Grammy, an Emmy, a Nobel Prize, 2 terms as President and a Twitter account.

    Donald Trump has 2 impeachments.

    The Trump Cartel relies on sleazy tactics to fleece their minions.

    The greatest threat to our nation’s future is not covid-19 or the rise of China or even the existential challenge of climate change. It is the Republican Party’s attempt to seize and hold power by offering voters the seductive choice of rejecting inconvenient facts and basic logic.

    Because they probably got scammed by The Orange Turd and they're too fucking embarrassed to admit it.
    And even though Trump bent them over and stole from them, they still suck his dick daily.
