What is this scam? How do I determine if this is a scam?
Political robocallers are often legitimate calls from a real political campaign. Legitimate political robocallers aren't trying to scam you or get your personal information for nefarious purposes. However, even legitimate versions of political robocalls can be annoying. And of course -- scammers may use politics to their advantage, too. Like religious scams, political scams may use a "common ground" to lower your defenses. A shared political party is shared affiliation -- you're both part of the same group, so you aren't as suspicious as you should be. Be very wary of any political call that requests a donation -- especially if the donation needs to be in a strange currency like gift cards or wire transfer. If you want to donate to a political cause, dial up an organization directly. If a political caller is requesting a lot of personal information, zip your lips. They're probably a scammer.
