In the past, at least one fraudulent website falsely has stated that it was sponsored by “Tea Party Patriots.” The fraudulent website was being promoted on local tea party social media sites. This site purported to give away merchandise, but solicited credit card information for the shipping. When a customer entered the credit card information, the card was then charged numerous times for unauthorized charges, sometimes totaling hundreds of dollars.
