WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.--()--SubscriberWise, the nation’s largest issuing CRA for the communications industry and the leading advocate for children victimized by identity fraud, announced today the urging to all consumers who plan to obtain a car rental to exercise extraordinary diligence with the notation of pre-existing damage. This critical announcement follows two -- back-to-back -- Avis Car Rental vehicles that company founder David Howe was asked to drive, each containing significant damage and unacceptable condition.
