The poignant piece of poetry you are about to read – written with great seriousness and paying homage to our fearless leaders, Lex Wilkinson and Don Reinhart – encompasses their valiant, unwavering efforts in preventing fraud within the telecom industry. As you read, you will follow the journey of their conquests against the fraudsters. We hope you enjoy reading this fine piece of history!
Once upon a time I met A happy little man, named Dan. Who, though a Fraudster he was not yet, Would make a funny plan… “It’s not hard to make a buck All I need are SIMs you see, And plug them right into this box I’ll live in luxury!” The plan was good It brought in checks But what poor Dan Forgot to plan Was another little man named Lex. Lex had seen this box before It seems like easy honey Next thing you know Your cash will flow But it’s the operator’s money. Lex, you see, was an honest guy And though fraud he’d love to try He knew it wrong, And so stayed strong And didn’t take from the operator’s pie. So Lex called his old friend Don: “Hey Don we’ve got a problem. This guy named Dan has an evil plan, And now we've got to stop ’em.” Don and Lex sat down to think And their minds began to stir. About five minutes later they had Invented Protocol Signature! “We really are so smart” said Don. Lex said “It’s obviously true! When we turn our wee minds on It’s amazing what we can do.” So Lex and Don assembled a team And proclaimed their blossoming dream: “There is a plan, By a man named Dan And this scam we must ban. It is a fraudulent Scheme!" Thus the team went right to work Hunting fraudsters down If you look close, you’ll see Lex smirk At poor Dan’s heavy frown. Dan said “It’s hard to make my money now That LATRO is involved. They block my SIMs and shut me down Before I’ve even called!” Dan was smart and quit the biz While he was ahead. He gave the stolen money back And with light conscience goes to bed. All Dan’s friends, they weren’t so clean. They kept trying to assail The operator’s revenue streams, But now they’re all in jail. So I end my little tale On gold, greed and glory. And if you let that greed prevail This might become your story.
