ID Watchdog Praises Consumer Federation of America Report on Identity Theft Protection Services

DENVER, CO – March 18, 2009. ID Watchdog President Justin Yurek today praised the first-ever survey and comprehensive report of the identity theft protection and services industry issued report issued today by the Consumer Federation of America (CFA).

ID Watchdog President Justin Yurek said, "ID Watchdog welcomes the CFA’s landmark report on Identity Theft services companies, and expects it to guide the sector's evolution from this point forward. This is important, groundbreaking research that is an essential read for consumers and for the industry it covers. With this well-researched report, the CFA has done a tremendous service to consumers, regulators and ID theft service companies. Its analysis of some of this young industry’s troubling shortcomings is spot on. We particularly welcome its call for industry best practices and closer oversight by the FTC and State AGs. The CFA report itself represents an important step in that direction because this report identifies the elements of what the best practices should be.”

After surveying 16 companies, the CFA report specifically mentioned ID Watchdog, citing positive aspects of the company’s services.

The CFA report states: "We were most impressed by ID Watchdog and…they make clear that their main emphasis is on resolving consumers’ problems if they are victims. They don’t offer insurance, which is of little value, and they also offer help for pre-existing identity theft problems under certain circumstances."
