    Donations to Scott Walker Flagged as Potential Fraud

    When MaryAnn Nellis tried to pay for groceries on April 14, her credit card was declined. Later, she said, she found out why: Her credit card company, Capital One, had flagged an earlier purchase as potentially fraudulent. The problem? A $5 donation to Friends of Scott Walker, the Wisconsin governor's campaign committee, Nellis said.
    Nellis told a Capital One representative she had not made the donation to Walker, who is fighting an effort to recall him as governor in a closely watched, expensive election set for June 5.

    Over my dead body," said Nellis, a potter and retired teacher in upstate New York who describes herself as "adamantly angry and upset" at Republicans such as Walker. Nellis disputed the charge and she was issued a new card.

    I wonder what prompted Capital one to put a fraud flag on friends of Scott Walker ... prior complaints?

    in any event, if intentional fraud is present, I hope it's prosecuted.

    Thats an interesting point...evidently there were others before this woman who had charges to friends of scott walker that they did not originate...more interesting is how they got the credit card info of a retired public worker in New York....seems to be there may have been a security breach of capitol ones customer list..

    With less than three weeks left before the vote on Walker's recall none of these charges will have time to change anything.
