FORT MYERS, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#Bondi—SubscriberWise,
the nation’s largest issuing consumer reporting agency for the
communications industry and the leading protector of children victimized
by identity theft nationwide, announced today that company founder and
credit czar David
Howe has alerted Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi of a predatory
scheme involving fraudulent damage recovery claims by National Car
Rental company (https://www.nationalcar.com/)
at the Fort Myers International Airport.
“Today I have personally reached out to Florida Attorney General Pam
Bondi concerning a predatory, and potentially criminal, damage recovery
scam that is perpetrated on innocent victims returning rentals to Fort
Myers International Airport,” said David Howe, SubscriberWise founder.
“The urgency to alert the chief lawmaker follows substantial and
compelling evidence that I obtained in the past few days which
demonstrates profound predatory behavior by the car rental agency. It
also follows an investigation earlier this year by Wink News involving a
similar circumstance with another SW FL couple: http://www.winknews.com/2016/02/29/sanibel-couple-charged-for-under-car-damages-to-rental/

Watch a manager for National Car Rental, Fort Lauderdale
International Airport, dismiss the same minor damage when asked if a
renter would be expected to report prior to exiting the agency: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Mhzk3FZDak
(note that the car was rented at Miami International Airport where
vehicles are located in a dark garage and this particular vehicle
contained a black grill which made it nearly impossible to see the very
minor grill “dent”).
“For the record, Luis, the National Car Rental manager at Fort
Lauderdale airport was very helpful,” acknowledged Howe. “In fact, the
information he offered – including a visit to the garage and a
demonstration of the agency’s standard protocol for damage evaluation –
really opened my eyes to the scheme that’s perpetrated at Fort Myers. It
certainly motivated my decision to contact AG Bondi.
“I also had the same demonstration at Miami International Airport and
the event is recorded,” Howe stated.
“In addition to my contact with the Attorney General, I’m filing a civil
suit against National for money damages related to time and travel
expenses associated with this bogus claim.
“Stay tuned,” concluded Howe. “I have audio recordings, photos, videos,
and more to substantiate the facts for AG Bondi and the civil justice
system. With the help of news agencies and FL lawmakers, I hope to stop
this predatory scheme in its tracks before another individual is
