As Election Day comes to a close, we take a moment to address the growing issue of voter fraud. Voter fraud can be found in multiple forms. There is voting as someone who has passed away, voting as someone else with an invalid ID also known as in-person voter impersonation. While impersonation fraud is rare, there have been reports of registration fraud and absentee ballot manipulation. Voting machines have also seen glitches on both sides of the political aisle with votes being incorrectly switched to the wrong candidate. In Florida, one election office sent automated phone calls to citizens advising that they had until November 7th, Wednesday, to vote. The problem was rectified today. In Philadelphia, it was reported that 75 credentialed voting inspectors were barred from entering polling places. Lastly, there have been issues with voter ID requirements and confusion among poll workers about what the requirements actually are with legitimate voters being turned away on Election Day.
No matter what state Americans are voting in, you can bet that the fraudster will be there says fraud expert, Linda Webb, aka The Fraud Dog. It doesn’t matter what controls you put in place, the creative minds of the fraudster wont be stopped. Fraud morphs daily. These unscrupulous criminals continually test new controls and find new ways to beat the system.
1 out of 3 Americans will be victimized by fraud annually. There is only one thing you can count on and that is good Americans who witness fraud must speak out and report fraud. We must encourage everyone to do their part and report fraud. More must be done to alert everyone in America of fraud scams. As the Fraud Dog, I ask everyone to report the fraudster. My commitment back is to alert every one of the new fraud scams that appear.On a day as important as Election Day, please take a stand for the fight against fraud. International Fraud Week is next week and no matter which President gets elected it will take all of us across America to fight the fraudster, says Linda Webb, the Fraud Dog.
