MASSILLON, Ohio--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--“Among the many hundreds of identity theft cases I’ve managed over the years, this is one of the worst few to agitate me so profoundly,” said SubscriberWise president David Howe and MCTV credit manager. “Because of SubscriberWise and its industry-specific technology this individual is going to realize there are consequences for attempting to defraud our member and worse, stealing his own son’s identity for the second time.”

“I’ve alerted the victim and his mother. I also intend to provide the SubscriberWise report that contains the address mismatch alert, along with substantial and uncontroverted evidence to law enforcement,” continued Howe. “I’ll expect the state to follow through on behalf of all the victims - especially the young man who has twice been victimized - and prosecute this case. It is due time for this offender to own his actions and learn a lesson,” Howe stated emphatically.
“We alone [MCTV] could cite hundreds of specific identity theft scenarios to justify the Red Flag mandates required of every telecom operator in this country,” said David Hoffer, COO for MCTV (http://www.mctvohio.com) and VP of SubscriberWise. “Collectively SubscriberWise member operators around the country could cite thousands more. If there’s anyone who remains doubtful of the benefits and importance of Red Flag compliance, they need only hear this fraud.”
