ID Watchdog Partners with Arlington Independent School District to Offer Identity Theft Protection Services to Employees and Their Families

DENVER, CO – May 1, 2009 ID Watchdog (TSX Venture: IDW), the most comprehensive consumer identity monitoring service available, is pleased to announce today a strategic alliance with the Arlington Independent School District (AISD) to offer ID Watchdog identity theft protection services as a new benefit to employees of the District and their families.

Through this partnership, AISD employees will have the option to select ID Watchdog’s patent-pending identity theft protection, detection, and resolution services as a part of a robust employee benefit package offered through Richardson, Texas-based Financial Benefits Services (, alongside traditional benefits such as health, dental, vision and life insurance. The more than 8,000 AISD employees and their families can rest assured knowing that their most important asset – their identities - are protected through ID Watchdog’s full-service monitoring and resolution coverage.

In explaining the importance of this strategic relationship, ID Watchdog’s President Justin Yurek said, “ID Watchdog is excited to join forces with the AISD to offer superior, comprehensive identity theft monitoring and resolution services as an additional employee benefit. The AISD is taking a leadership position looking for new ways to deliver value to their hard-working teachers, administrators, employees, and their families.”

While the AISD evaluated several other heavily-marketed identity protection services, ID Watchdog was selected based on the completeness of their product offering. ID Watchdog is the only company that provides consumers with comprehensive, 360-degree identity theft protection services, backed by a 100% resolution guarantee. Going far beyond simple credit and financial monitoring, ID Watchdog scours thousands of databases including criminal history, DMV, medical, tax, social security, telephone and utility records, internet surveillance, and much more, offering the earliest possible detection of potential identity crimes. Certified, in-house Identity Specialists ensure that any identity theft issues that may arise during their customers’ enrollment are resolved at no extra charge, guaranteed.

ID Watchdog executives developed its patent-pending identity theft monitoring technology in conjunction with consumer advocates, consumer protection agencies, law enforcement agencies, banks, privacy experts and technology professionals. ID Watchdog’s technology searches a broad range of data sources for signs of identity theft and provides immediate containment and resolution services, which differentiates it from competitors that package credit monitoring as identity theft protection.

“Identity Theft continues as the fastest growing crime in America, and given the current state of the economy, shows no signs of slowing down any time soon,“ said Laura Clark, Coordinator of Benefits at AISD. “ID Watchdog will be an invaluable tool for keeping our employees and their families safe. We owe it to our employees to provide them with only the best service, and we found ID Watchdog to be the most comprehensive service and the best overall value.”

ID Watchdog will be available to all eligible AISD employees in April 2009, during their annual open enrollment period.
