Stealth Mark Receives Letter of Intent (LOI) from ICTA
ActiveDuty™ to be Targeted at Counterfeiters in the Coin Industry
HOFFMAN ESTATES, IL, June 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wellness Center USA, Inc.’s (OTCQB: WCUI) wholly-owned subsidiary, StealthCo, Inc., dba Stealth Mark, today announced reaching a signed Letter of Intent (LOI) with the Industry Council for Tangible Assets (ICTA) to engage the company’s ActiveDuty™ intelligence system to provide ICTA, and its Anti-Counterfeiting Task Force arm (ACTF), comprehensive reporting of the ongoing landscape of the counterfeit coins, paper money, slabs and packaging in the marketplace.
The agreement will include an ActiveDuty™ “First Wave” report providing a comprehensive snap-shot analysis of the global marketplace occurring in the here and now. Foundational in its nature, the First Wave Report will provide strategic intelligence for future steps, with intelligence gleaned from it shared as ICTA deems appropriate. The report comprises of a system of modeling and cycled learning employing ActiveDuty science for the discovery and mapping of the players engaged, and the area of counterfeit activity occurring within the marketplace.
Soon following the First Wave Report, ActiveDuty “Industry” reports are anticipated to begin generating on a quarterly basis. These reports are considered the go-to system for actionable intelligence (both strategic and tactical) on an entire industry vertical. This extended-reach research system encompasses an industry-wide lens, but on a worldwide scale. ICTA members may subscribe to the ACTF Industry Report on an annual basis, with a portion of generated revenue being allotted in support for the ongoing work of the ACTF.
“The ActiveDuty system is a major missing piece to ACTF’s fight against counterfeiters and the people who are distributing counterfeits worldwide. Timing is everything and this has come along at the perfect time,” said Kathy McFadden, ICTA Executive Director. Echoing her sentiments, Beth Deisher, ICTA Director of Anti-Counterfeiting stated, “The ActiveDuty system will help our industry leaders as well as every law enforcement agency globally"
ICTA subscription holders will have the right to add to the premise and scope of the search as it relates to the overall marketplace. In addition, they may also order ActiveDuty “SoCom” and/or Tactical reports that offer ever granular attributes of unprecedented intelligence that can arm law enforcement with an arsenal of tools, along with real-time information, that can lead to pro-active strategies and focused tactical intelligence.
“ICTA has been doing incredible work raising awareness in the public, law enforcement and governmental agencies and private sectors concerning counterfeiting, and in helping law enforcement bring those engaging in it to justice,” stated Lee Anne Patterson, VP of Sales and Marketing. “As a new member of ICTA and the ACTF, we are eager to contribute and add value to the efforts with our world-class ActiveDuty system. We consider it a privilege to work with the entire association in this effort.”
