According to the old saying, “Necessity if the mother of invention”. And that appears to be the case with Lifeline Assistance, the free government cell phone program.
Fraud has plagued this outstanding program across the country. But the Las Vegas Guardian Express reports that scam artists may have met their match thanks to high technology innovations.
According to the Guardian Express, “Contractors like Life Wireless and its subcontractors have gone the extra mile to make sure only eligible individuals are processed for the phones. In fact, Brightstar Innovations,Inc. a subcontractor with its’ primary offices in Orland Park, Illinois developed Project P.R.I.D.E (Pro-Active Resources Intervening to Develop Esteem and Employment) to target the most needy populations to receive the phones.”
Author Christina Primbas reports PRIDE identifies partnership and collaborates with Community Based Organizations to make sure that the free government cell phones actually end up in the hands of soon to be released prisioners, the homeless, folks receiving public assistance, and senior citizens. And Primbas points out, those are exactly the people for whom this program was designed.
PRIDE’s advanced screening process, conducted in conjunction with the appropriate community based organizations and government entities, assures that the free government cell phones go to the people for whom this program was designed and don’t end up in the hands of fraudulent customers.
Our heartiest congratulations to PRIDE and Life Wireless for their efforts to keep the program healthy and honest.
