CLEVELAND--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--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.

“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”
“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."
