Outcome: Theft Prevented by Timely Dissemination of an Intelligence Alert

On September 29, 2014, CargoNet broadcasted an intelligence alert regarding a suspicious phone number. Following the broadcast a CargoNet member received a call from a “Frank” calling to setup his carrier. During the set up process, Frank provided them with a certificate of authority, insurance certificate, and W-9, which all looked to match up. However upon further review it was identified that the phone number provided by Frank matched the Intelligence Alert that had been distributed to members earlier that day. Subsequently, Frank’s application was declined and another theft was avoided!
