Scammers are telling potential victims that their electric bill will be COMPLETELY paid by Obama if they will just forfeit over their name, address, social security number, date of birth, and bank account information.
There are red flag all over this scam but people are so used to the big government nanny state that thousands are falling for it. The perfect victim has to be your typical Obama lover that believes all your bills should be paid for.
The scheme spread quickly across the nation in recent weeks with help from victims who unwittingly shared it on social media sites before realizing they had been conned out of personal information such as Social Security, credit card and checking account numbers.
Taneisha Morris, a victim:
"It was very disappointing to me…They shouldn’t do that to people. I just lost my job in February, so it’s very hard for me to come up with extra money."
