BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SubscriberWise® (http://www.subscriberwise.com), the leading provider of analytics driven subscriber decision management technology and the nation’s largest issuing consumer reporting agency for the communications industry, announced today that the company has contacted Senator Elizabeth Warren’s office with a new case of child identity theft.
This latest federal crime occurred on Tuesday, November 17, 2015, and was thwarted during an application for an internet service account involving a 13-year old’s legal name, legitimate social security number, and a fabricated date of birth.
When confronted, the perpetrator acknowledged guilt and was ultimately given a warning never to engage in this behavior again and to instead protect children. Hear the conversation: http://subscriberwise.com/media/2015-11-17_Grandmother__Granddaughter.wav .
“Today I reached out to Senator Elizabeth Warren’s office requesting an urgent meeting after another innocent child was victimized by identity theft,” confirmed David Howe, founder of SubscriberWise. “Children are literally being exploited every day in this nation and Congress has done absolutely nothing to stop it.
“It’s imperative that I meet with Senator Warren to fully expose her to the realities of this crime and to demonstrate the stunning weaknesses in the credit system that allow this exploitation to occur with frightening regularity. I’m convinced that Senator Warren will share my assessment that the absence of a standard technology protocol at the federal level not only contributes to this crime, but actually perpetuates it with remarkable frequency.”
