‘Ding and dent’ victim travels to Washington to provide an on-the-record interview of rental nightmare with the FBI while also making rounds on Capitol Hill

Let the sunshine shine and may the power forever rest with the people”
— David Howe, SubscriberWise founder and CEO
WASHINGTON, D.C., UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, September 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ -- SubscriberWise, the nation’s largest issuing CRA for the communications industry and the leading protector of children victimized by identity fraud, announced today the confirmation of a recorded interview between SubscriberWise founder and an agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The interview included the allegations of the ‘ding and dent’ incident in October 2016, but with a focus on the two public records which profoundly expose significant concerns regarding substantial financial consumer threats for lawmakers, media, and the renting public here and around the world to ponder and consider urgently and carefully.

See: http://www.einpresswire.com/newsroom/subscriberwise_newsroom/ for related news and images.

Specifically the two public records that were referenced for the Federal Bureau of Investigation and available to anyone through Florida’s broad ‘Sunshine Law’ ( http://myfloridalegal.com/pages.nsf/Main/DC0B20B7DC22B7418525791B006A54E4 ) are the official ‘Lee County Port Authority Police Report’ (Case No. 2016000055203) and the official ‘County Court of the Twentieth Judicial Circuit in and for Lee County Florida’ (Case No. 2018-SC-001768), Honorable Archie B. Hayward Jr.

The interview was conducted on Monday September 17, 2018, in the nation’s Capital and followed visits to the Office of the Honorable United States Senator Sherrod Brown, the Office of the Honorable Charles Schumer, the Office of the Honorable Elizabeth Warren, and the Office of the Honorable Bob Nelson of the great state of Florida -- where Howe is a part-time seasonal resident and homeowner.

For the record, Howe is a native Ohioan and therefore intends to focus his legislative efforts to obtain ‘predictable and uniform car rental standards’ which are so desperately needed, with his constituent Senator, and who Howe supports and voted for 100 percent of the time, the Honorable Sherrod Brown of the great state of Ohio.

“I want to thank the FBI for taking time to record my testimony. Of course, I also want to thank the United States Senators’ staff members who were each so gracious in their welcoming, as well as their care, concern, and effort to record my concerns seriously. Moreover, let the record reflect the gratitude to the law enforcement professionals that I had the pleasure to interact with during my visit to the Senate Office Buildings and beyond. Each and every encounter proved accommodating, entirely respectful, and most importantly, helpful as I made my way around Washington, D.C. to empower our government with information so long desired but so difficult to obtain.

“Yesterday, that all changed as agencies across DC and beyond were empowered and enlightened,” Howe confirmed.

“Regarding the FBI interview, I was given an ample opportunity to articulate a number of important details for the encounter in late October 2016, at the Fort Myers SW FL International Airport, National Car Rental airport location. And that’s exactly what I tried to accomplish to the best of my ability,” Howe said. “But I had one primary request for the FBI that I repeated and urged a number of times. I requested agents from the Naples, FL, FBI office travel to the airport and obtain the Official Lee County Port Authority Police Department report with its myriad of facts, testimony, photographs, and more. And once obtained along with the hard evidence from an exhaustive investigation complied by a dedicated and highly-professional Lee Port Authority Police Officer, including sworn witness testimony and the high-definition photographic evidence, I requested the agents obtain the official court trial transcript – AND MOST IMPORTANTLY ITEMS EXHIBITED AT TRIAL AND NOW DOCKETED ON THE PERMANENT PUBLIC RECORD -- and compare the two and the sworn testimony forever recorded for the world to evaluate, know, and ultimately criticize with rage and fervor at an injustice of high magnitude and profound concern indeed. And the same can be said about the obvious manipulation and cover-up so readily apparent to anyone who bothers to read the two reports,” Howe remarked

“Why. Because the contradictions really are remarkable. And undeniable. Literally.

“Yes, they are breathtaking. The story concocted is undeniable to all when compared to the mountain of evidence and the substantiating Lee Port Authority Police report – all of which was intentionally and aggressively objected to; all of which was kept far from Judge Hayward’s discerning eyes. No matter now,” continued Howe. “Because one involved the facts from an independent police investigation, including sworn testimony from the primary witnesses involved. Those facts, and in particular the under-oath contradictions – also known as perjury in the state of Florida ( http://www.leg.state.fl.us/Statutes/index.cfm?App_mode=Display_Statute&URL=0800-0899/0837/Sections/0837.02.html ) – can no longer be dismissed or argued out-of-hand when compared to the other item, the Lee civil court testimony taken, of course, under-oath.

“Yes, the facts and testimony, they are now in the light of day and they can never be altered or taken back to fit a narrative that the defense would have us all believe in court, was the truth,” Howe proclaimed.

“But there was one question that the FBI agent asked me a few times,” Howe stated. “And that question was ‘why didn’t you give the police report to the Judge?’ In fact, without ready access to the court transcript to recite the numerous objections verbatim, it was my impression that the agent believed I was exaggerating this point. To the agent, it just didn’t seem plausible that an official police investigation would not get the careful scrutiny of a court of law – most notably a ‘small claim’ court where the merits of the case should trump the complex rules of civil procedure the defense attorney -- in grand pleasure -- was able to play to his radically unfair advantage. Nevertheless, it was a keen observation from my perspective, that the agent asked before I had the opportunity to stress this otherwise critical point.

“To be clear, that’s the critical point that every reasonable person would ask…why WOULD any ETHICAL company conducting business appropriately -- and without anything unfair, deceptive, or abusive, to conceal -- make such an extraordinary effort to keep a judge from reading the profound and extraordinary investigative effort of a fellow law enforcement officer sworn himself to uphold the law – a task he performed diligently and exactly in line with the oath he made to the people and visitors to Lee County, Fl,” Howe added.

“And to be sure, my answer to the question was ‘EXACTLY’,” Howe emphasized. “Yes, it simply begs the question why would any organization not want a court of law to consider an exhaustive police investigation, particularly since the same witness who was testifying in front of the Honorable Archie B. Hayward Jr., who presided over the small claims hearing, was also under-oath when he proffered a witness statement to Lee Police. The answer, hardly a surprise, is that Enterprise consistently objected to the police report as ‘hearsay’ – as well as every single item of audio and video evidence I had to prove the case – but for a single audio clip confirming the money pursuit.


“It’s obvious,” Howe stressed.

“Because the police investigation and all that was detailed and exposed simply couldn’t align with the grand fairy-story that was offered to the Lee Clerk of the Court and the people of the nation and the world,” Howe confirmed.
“Fortunately, though, for the truth and the facts of the matter, I’ve had some very powerful and some very informed allies through this process. And much of it from law enforcement professionals from Maryland to California who have delivered both direct and indirect aid and information to expose the consumer harm that is ever apparent,” confirmed Howe.

“So yes, I’m both pleased and relived to have effectively passed the Baton now that all the evidence is finally on the table – including now two public records each containing sworn testimony – and no longer mere allegations from the victim – to state and federal law enforcement, as well as major media outlets. In other words, the details, the evidence, the facts, and most importantly, the TRUTH can never be concealed.
Praise justice! The public will forever remain informed and aware. The public will understand the risks are real and the need to protect oneself is dramatic. But, thankfully, no human effort will every erase the public record and the bad acts contained therein.

“Let the sunshine shine and may the power forever rest with the people,” Howe concluded.
