Enterprise Holdings felony grand theft victim demands meeting with lawmakers following another financially freighting rental encounter, MSO to RSW

Enterprise has been accused of running a ding-and-dent scam so often by readers of this site, I’ve lost count.”

— Christopher Elliott, Consumer Advocate at Elliott.org

ORLANDO AND FORT MYERS, FL, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, August 20, 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 public meeting demand from Enterprise Holdings 'ding and dent' felony grand theft crime victim to state and US lawmakers. The urgent meeting request follows a one-way rental from Orlando International Airport to the Fort Myers International Airport that exposes undocumented and pre-exisiting vehicle damage. It's a common type of pre-existing damage that is routinely used to implicate unsuspecting renters by predatory agencies seeking to exploit this unabated and dangerous consumer harm for significant financial gain.

The rental was obtained on Saturday, August 18, 2018, at the Orlando International Airport and returned the next day, Sunday, August 19, 2018, at the Fort Myers International Airport.

The complete details of the rental encounter – origination to termination — are captured on high-definition video and expose the incredible financial threat that lawmakers have directly and indirectly enabled against consumers through legislative inaction and complacency. Unfortunately, an un/under-regulated market will not protect consumers from an industry operating without consumer safeguards. Lawmakers must act immediately and these videos offers some of the most dramatic evidence ever obtained to motivate prompt action.

According to the Florida Attorney General, the car rental industry is the single largest source of consumer complaints annually in the state.

"If there is any doubt about the remarkable financial risks waiting for innocent consumers of the car rental industry, let me say today that this latest video documentation will finally and dramatically put to silence any debate concerning the substantial financial hardships perpetrated against unsuspecting consumers who only expected the good faith and fair dealing covenant," proclaimed David Howe, National Car Rental 'ding and dent' felony grand theft crime victim and survivor. "And, most critical, if lawmakers continue to turn a blind eye to these clear and present harms while also allowing the car rental industry to operate with unconscionable adhesion contracts and under the cover of law through unfair mediation and other predatory practices, then they are equally culpable for the crimes.

"These culpable lawmakers, they must be held to account by the voters of this nation," Howe emphasized.

"On Wednesday of this week, I intend to present a mountain of crime-scene evidence to Honorable Archie B. Hayward in the Lee County Justice Center in Howe vs. Enterprise Holdings, Inc.," continued victim Howe. "I'm going to prove beyond any and all doubt the intentional negligence and subsequent criminal fraud that was employed by National Car Rental in the commission of the felony grand theft and corporate cover-up. And among a number of things planned for the courtroom, I'm going to ask Judge Hayward to help me pursue justice — not only for my individual injustice, but also for my fellow sisters and brothers from here and around the world.

I'm also going to ask the Judge to publicly acknowledge the disgrace to American jurisprudence enabled by lawmakers who effectively allow an industry to operate without basic uniform and predictable standards. It's the lawmakers inaction that effectively restricts the power of the judge to enforce otherwise common sense laws and protections to protect the public from these easy and frequent criminal scams.

"Of course, I'm planning to ask the Judge to acknowledge — publicly for the record — the disgrace of denying consumers due process in a court of law of appropriate jurisdiction.

"Yes, it's time to derail this theft train once and for all," concluded victim Howe. "But to be sure, no one individual can't do it alone. The theft train simply has too much speed and too much momentum as it races down the track. I'm very much looking forward to any assistance Judge Hayward may offer."

Author’s note: The two videos reveal no predatory or criminal behavior by either agent at origination or return. Remarkably, both agents recognized and agree that consumer harms are genuine and change is profoundly indicated. Rather, the content document in stark terms the shocking financial risks that too often translate in substantial harms (i.e. felony theft) for myriads of renters from the USA, as well as our sisters and brothers from around the world who visit here. Therefore, the contents will not be published until lawmakers have seen the threat that they've enabled and perpetuated.

Oil & Gas Exploration & Production: An Anchor for Any Investment Portfolio

"Wildcatters” are obsolete; scientists now pioneer a new frontier of security

Integrity is simply a matter of protecting our partners’ investments, a commitment to extraordinary service, ‘following the rules’ and protecting our planet…. Everyone benefits.”

— William Baker, CEO

GARLAND, TX, USA, August 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — A wise man once said, “Luck is the function of preparation meeting opportunity.” To that maxim must be added the necessity of expertise meeting experience. Today’s most successful developmental oil & gas companies, their investors, enjoy the benefits of 21st Century state-of-the-art technology, pure science and professional management in order to “get lucky”. Never before have opportunities become available with minimal risk while maximizing profit.

Locating a small ocean of accessible oil & gas, hidden more than 1,000’s of feet below the earth’s surface … among millions of cubic miles of the earth’s crust … is only half the battle. Bringing the product above ground, transmitting it to refineries across 1,000’s of miles, accommodating regulatory compliance, protecting the environment and optimizing market values require integrity, insight and 24/7 diligence in order to generate optimal returns.

Increasingly, industry trends attest to the value of investments with independent, proven, development companies in the oil & gas business. Significant tax advantages, higher potential for ROI’s, less vulnerability to the whims and wild fluctuations of international markets, politics and lobbyists, only complement the potential superiority of these investments as opposed to the stock or commodities markets. Key, however, is identifying the proven and durable enterprises that have survived and thrived despite the inevitable fluctuations in prices and outside geo-political influences thereon.

In a recent survey, one prominent example of stability stands out. Cannon Operating, LLC has weathered the storms of $26 per barrel oil and rewarded its investors with $110 per barrel oil over the past 10-plus years. Although based in (where else but?) Dallas, TX, Cannon and its international investors have found consistent success in its many projects throughout the U.S. As importantly, the fundamental corporate philosophy is one of, “Integrity”.

In a recent interview, CEO William Baker elaborated: “We’re scheduled to have Mustang #2 spudded at the end of August 2018. The press and the public are encouraged to contact our offices for the technical details or any remaining investment opportunities. To your question on the definition of our commitment to “integrity”, I’ll make this brief.”

“Integrity” is simply a matter of protecting our partners’ investments, a commitment to extraordinary service, ‘following the rules’ and protecting our planet: We issue regular status and financial reports to all investor-owners. We also spend a small fortune in knowing and meeting all state and federal government mandates – whatever they may be in any given month. As importantly, we don’t over-react to any transient, artificial, tax windfalls or deregulation of environmental protections. We’re in this for the long haul. Everyone benefits from our vision, commitment to safety and social responsibility.”

There has never been a better time to visit Jamaica

guests on the beautiful tropical island have never felt safer”

— Alexandra Baradi

NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, August 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Leading luxury villa rental company Exceptional Villas is predicting that 2019 will be an excellent year for tourism to Jamaica. All the key industry indicators and year on year advance booking metrics are showing that Jamaica is showing a substantial increase in advance bookings.

Alexandra Baradi, Owner, and CEO of Exceptional Villas said that "guests on the beautiful tropical island have never felt safer". Since the beginning of the year, the crime rate has decreased dramatically. Local Jamaicans and the expat community are very happy with the present state of affairs. Montego Bay and its environs are quiet and more peaceful than in the last 15 years. There are reports of people walking to work as they have never done. Tourists are carrying on as usual.

Hospitality Leaders are reporting that guests on the island are not afraid and excursions are up compared to previous years. New biking and walking tours have become popular as a result of the peaceful conditions. Clients who were concerned and asked for security prior to arrival, have canceled the security within 12 hours of being on the island. Our guests are reporting no issues, and they all feel safe & comfortable. The massive reduction in crime since January 2018 is 70% across the board. The State of Emergency put in place last January was only aimed at the city areas that had the highest crime rate. All tourist areas, residential and villa areas are free of crime. The rate of crime against a tourist is recorded at 0.006% annually.

Above all Jamaica offers some of the best value in the Caribbean Region when it comes to villas and vacation rentals. Most luxury villas in Jamaica include chefs, butlers, and housekeepers. The island has more repeat business than any other island in the region and this is primarily due to the friendliness of the local people and their ability to make guests to the island feel very special.


Exceptional Villas is part of Dream World Travel Ltd; A European based vacation Rental Company with clients and destinations all over the world. They have been in the travel business for over 25 years and offer a unique bespoke service to their clients. This includes matching the perfect villa for each client and also providing a full and complimentary concierge service. This service includes all aspects of the client’s vacations such as VIP airport arrival, ground transportation, restaurant reservations, tours and excursions, water sports and pre-arrival stocking. Unlike some of their competitors, they do not provide a membership fee. Likewise, their villa experts are indeed experts. They visit every single villa and are filled with a wealth of information regarding each villa, as well as each destination. Exceptional Villas take total pride in the customized service they offer. Some of their other popular destinations include Barbados, Turks and Caicos and Antigua.

AV-C's Real-World Protection Test is currently the most comprehensive and complex test available, using a large number of test cases.

INNSBRUCK, TYROL, AUSTRIA, August 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — AV-Comparatives' Real-World Protection Test is currently the most comprehensive and complex test available, using a large number of test cases. Currently, we are running this test under Microsoft Windows 10 Pro RS4 64 Bit with up-to-date third-party software (such as Adobe Flash, Adobe Acrobat Reader, Java, etc.). Due to this, finding in-the-field working exploits and running malware is much more challenging than e.g. under an non-up-to-date system with unpatched/vulnerable third-party applications.

This fact sheet is a short overview of the Whole-Product Dynamic Real-World Protection Test results of July 2018. The detailed overall result consumer product reports (covering five months each) are released in July and December. Each of the overall result reports will also contain a false-alarm test and will contain the awards the products reached based on their overall scores during the respective five-month period. For more information about this Real-World Protection Test, please read the detailed factsheet.


Over the year we evaluate several tens of thousands malicious URLs. Unfortunately, many of these have to be discarded for various reasons. We remove duplicates such as the same malware hosted on different domains or IP addresses, sites already tested, “grey” or non-malicious sites/files, and malware/sites disappearing during the test. Many malicious URLs carrying exploits were not able to compromise the chosen system/applications because of the patch level. This means that the vulnerabilities in the third-party applications on the system were already patched and the exploits could therefore not deliver their malicious payload. Users should be aware that by always keeping their system and third-party applications up-to-date/patched, they can dramatically decrease the risk posed by exploits.

Test Results
The results are based on the test set of 186 live test cases (malicious URLs found in the field), consisting of working exploits (i.e. drive-by downloads) and URLs pointing directly to malware. Thus exactly the same infection vectors are used as a typical user would experience in everyday life. The test-cases used cover a wide range of current malicious sites and provide insights into the protection given by the various products (using all their protection features) while surfing the web.

Every month (from February to June and from July to November) we update the charts on our website showing the protection rates of the various tested products over the various months. The interactive charts can be found on our website. The chart below shows only the protection scores for the month of JULY 2018 (186 test cases). The results of the false-positives test are also shown in the monthly factsheets/graph.
