CHARLOTTE, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SubscriberWise, the nation’s largest issuing consumer reporting agency for the communications industry and America’s leading protector of children victimized by identity fraud, announced today that its founder and majority shareholder is reiterating previous comments to President Trump, along with his new Administration, highlighting again the persistent nationwide child identity theft crisis which follows hundreds of cases exposed by the chief executive over the past decade.

“I’m sounding the alarm again today on behalf of victim children everywhere,” said David Howe, SubscriberWise founder. “And speaking of victim children, I learned that the parent-suspect who robbed the identity of his 12-year-old child, and who also used the stolen identity to substantially defraud CenturyLink and MCTV, failed to appear at his criminal arraignment and is now on the run from the law. And what a surprise since the prosecutors involved decided to reduce the initial felony charges to a single misdemeanor to spare revictimization of the young victim.
“The State of Ohio argued that the boy may have been called to testify against his own dad in a felony identity fraud case,” Howe added. “That was the justification for reducing the charges. Apparently, the suspect was not satisfied with this very generous offer and chose instead to flee."
“Several years ago, SubscriberWise initiated a national campaign to implement protections for the nation’s babies and children who are daily victims of identity theft,” continued Howe. “Since then we’ve been continuously advocating for technology solutions, as well as parental and consumer education – to dramatically reduce this rampant victimization."
“We’ve also contacted national and local politicians, media, and law enforcement professionals around the nation with overwhelming evidence of the problem. We’ve provided an array of common sense legislative solutions and suggestions."
“Now we're turning our attention to President Trump and the new Administration (http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20161202005592/en). We’re hoping for results."
“And that’s another way of way of saying that we’re actually expecting ‘all action and no talk’."
“Yes, that’s action…not talk,” concluded Howe.
