Scam Alert: Donald Trump’s Website Won’t Let You Cancel Recurring Donations

Just like his Trump University, his investments in Atlantic City, his acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention, and basically his entire presidential campaign, it turns out that Donald Trump’s campaign website looks like just another scam.

On Wednesday, CNN reporter Jeremy Diamond sent out this tweet noting that a supporter of Trump had emailed him to say that he couldn’t cancel his recurring contribution on Trump’s official campaign site.

On Thursday, Mic confirmed that, no, there is no button to undo your recurring payment to the Trump campaign. You can’t delete the recurring payment. You can’t even delete your credit card information (you can update it, but it has to be with a different valid card number). So you just keep paying Trump’s campaign, we suppose, until the end of time.

Federal Election Commission spokesperson Christian Hilland told Mic that there’s nothing illegal about this per se, that is until a person’s automatic payments put her over the maximum contribution limit of $2,700.

Clinton’s campaign has a “remove card” option on its site for recurring payments, Mic reports. Trump’s campaign did not return multiple requests for comment to the site.

Time notes that there’s a chance you might be able to cancel the payment by filling out Trump’s online contact form and requesting that unwanted donations be taken back and future ones be canceled.

But the magazine also noted that you may have to go directly to your credit card company or bank to prevent future charges, and that removing past unwanted charges that have already posted might be difficult to impossible.

“It’s more of a toss-up if the bank would contest it or not, because, in a way, the transaction was approved,” credit card expert Sean McQuay told Time.
