Howe to Trump: The Nation’s Exploited Children Will Need Your Help

SubscriberWise CEO and the Highest FICO Achiever in Worldwide Banking
and Financial History Releases Statement Regarding Child ID Theft to
Political Front-Runner Trump

CLEVELAND–(BUSINESS WIRE)–SubscriberWise, the nation’s largest issuing consumer reporting agency
for the communications industry and a leading provider of
analytics-driven subscriber risk management technology, announced today
that its president, founder, and majority shareholder is seeking to
inform Presidential candidate Donald Trump about an urgent national
problem that continues unabated and following hundreds of child identity
thefts prevented by SubscriberWise’s David Howe. (

“One year ago SubscriberWise initiated a campaign to strengthen
protections for children who are frequently victims of identity theft,”
said David Hoffer, VP and CFO for SubscriberWise. “We’ve advocated for
technology solutions, as well as parental and consumer education – not
punishment or retribution against perpetrators who are very often the
parents of the victims and in difficult financial situations. We’ve
contacted local and national politicians with overwhelming evidence of
the problem and offered solutions. Now we’re expanding our efforts with
the goal of informing Mr. Trump that the problem continues and children
are waiting for a solution.”

“Today there’s an army of agents around the nation who interact with
SubscriberWise technology tens of thousands of times each month,” said
David Howe, founder and president of SubscriberWise. “These
professionally trained customer service representatives are on the front
lines representing the nation’s leading communications companies. Many
of these professionals have been confronted with a suspected child
identity theft. They know that weaknesses in the credit system enable
victimization of children with ease and impunity. They too are
frustrated and many have contacted SubscriberWise with their concerns
over the years.

“I am outraged that after an entire year of aggressively advocating on
behalf of minor children, there’s been no progress made on this issue,”
emphasized Howe. “Children continue to suffer with hardly a concern and
virtually never a voice. We must do better. Trump should lead the charge
since others haven’t.

“I remain convinced that technology solutions would positively impact
this problem. Despite any political or policy concerns, it’s undeniable
that Donald Trump knows how to leverage technology and navigate in
wildly successful ways with his business and professional endeavors. And
from my perspective, that’s exactly what’s needed to successfully
advocate on behalf of victim children.

“Yes, if Mr. Trump becomes President of the United States of America
I’ll finally have some confidence that we’ll actually solve a problem
that others could not,” concluded Howe. “America’s innocent children
have waited long enough.”
