National Car Rental Fraud Victim Discusses Crime and Consumer Protections with U.S. Senator Rubio’s Office

SubscriberWise founder and fraud victim David Howe shares predatory
details of theft attempt while advocating for the public with Senator
Marco Rubio’s office

TAMPA, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#AlamoSubscriberWise,
the nation’s largest issuing CRA for the communications industry and the
leading provider of big data, advanced-analytics, and business-rules
technology, announced today that company founder and child
 David Howe traveled to the Office of United States Senator
Marco Rubio.

“Yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting Shauna Johnson, Senator Marco
Rubio’s staff assistant,” said David Howe, crime-victim consumer
advocate and survivor. “And today I’m publicly thanking Ms. Johnson for
taking time from her extremely busy schedule to hear the facts about my
personal victimization, as well as listen to suggestions that I believe
will mitigate predatory behavior which, unfortunately, harms citizens
and visitors with frequency and impunity.

“Among the comprehensive
evidence involving the attempted theft
last October, I also came to
the meeting armed with documentation from the rental car industry that
demonstrates the urgent need for federal and state legislative

“The documentation included:

  • Fuel charges predatorily and automatically charged despite gas
    receipts and full tanks
  • Rudimentary damage receipts which enable and encourage attempted and
    civil theft
  • Fraudulent mis-recording of mileage which enable agents’ ‘joyriding’
    in rental fleet at potential financial liability to consumer
  • Vehicles rented with ‘excessive’ damage and with the absence of
    photographic and written evidence to substantiate pre-existing
  • Arbitration clauses buried in fine print designed entirely to conceal
    industry’s behavior from public court dockets

“We also discussed the predatory practice of duplicate toll charges that
have plagued many victims, including me, and which is currently under
investigation by the FL AG’s office.

“I want to thank Senator Rubio directly for empowering his staff to
focus on critical issues that impact not only Florida property owners,
tax payers and crime victims like me, but for U.S.A. citizens across
this nation and around the globe.

“Despite the fact that I’ve retained counsel and intend to obtain
compensatory justice, I indeed forgive National Car Rental and its
employees for the illicit behavior last October,” continued Howe. “In
large part, the absence of strong and unambiguous federal and state laws
encourages and enables this unethical and even illegal behavior.
However, there’s no doubt that it’s time for Enterprise Holdings to
become part of the solution.

“Yes, I do hope Enterprise senior executives will join me in Washington
where I plan to continue pursing justice for me and all others here and
around the world,” Howe concluded.
