KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Two Missourians say they were surprised to receive credit card statements indicating they had donated to Barack Obama's presidential campaign.

Sandy Pogones of Camdenton and Steve Larman of North Kansas City each found a $2,300 charge on their credit card bills recently for the Obama for America campaign. Both say they do not support Obama and would not contribute to his campaign.

Both say they contacted their credit card companies, which dropped the charges.

Pogones says she also contacted the Missouri attorney general's office and the FBI.

Larman says he just wants to know if another organization is funneling money to Obama, or if someone is using the Obama name to steal from people.


Seems like there is a thief somewhere who thinks Obama needs stolen cash more than they do?

Or an anti-Obama hacker who thinks this will play well as a smear tactic?

I smell a rat. And it's not an Obama fan.

Why is the news media not reporting this? Oh, of course, you can't prove the Obama campaign actually had anything to do with it. Isn't the first law of investigation "Follow the money!"?

Just Curious

It is a common tactic used by identity thieves. There is nothing political about it.

Credit card number thieves will always use something like this to verify that the number they have is real. Once it's verified, the thieves know the number is real and can be used to make themselves money.

You must have a rubber arm to stretch that far. Your talking about a felony that is easily chased down and prosecuted.

This is just a preview of what an Obama administration will look like.
If they think you make too much money, they will just take it.

And we're supposed to take the word of two Missourian beings?



Obama once kicked my grandma.

You don't contact the FBI unless you have a case. If this was just politics or a prank...we definately would have heard about it. Making false statements to the FBI is punishable by law.
