Barry said our electric bills would “necessarily” skyrocket. He didn’t say he’d help you pay for it!
As much as President Barack Obama wants your vote, he’s not actually offering to pay your monthly bills.
But thousands of Americans have been persuaded otherwise, falling victim to a fast-moving scam that claims to be part of an Obama administration program to help pay utility bills in the midst of a scorching summer.
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.
Obamabots will believe anything!
Taneisha Morris’ sister was drawn into the hoax after a friend received a text promising federal assistance with her bills. The sister sent the information to Morris, a Detroit woman who is unemployed after losing her job as a manager at a KFC restaurant.
Morris quickly took advantage, providing her Social Security number and asking for $187 toward her DirecTV bill and $800 toward what she owed DTE Energy, a Michigan utility.
“It was very disappointing to me,” Morris said Thursday after learning she had been deceived. “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.”
