IdentitySweep to Feature Credit Monitoring Component From TransUnion's TrueCredit.com

Consumers to Benefit From Scope of Combined Services

ARLINGTON, VA--(Marketwire - January 23, 2008) - MyPublicInfo, Inc. (www.MyPublicInfo.com), a leading provider of identity theft scoring and monitoring solutions, today announced its partnership with TransUnion's TrueCredit.com, adding the benefits of online credit monitoring to its own signature identity theft prevention service, IdentitySweep. IdentitySweep utilizes an innovative new method of identity scoring by searching databases and chat rooms for Social Security numbers, credit and debit card numbers, and other consumer information that has been hacked, stolen or breached. The new combined package is available directly to consumers for $19.95 and can be purchased at www.IdentitySweep.com beginning today.

"While IdentitySweep is proactively searching multiple external sources for unauthorized use of a consumer's information, TrueCredit Monitoring is watching over that consumer's credit report, providing an email alert when a critical change occurs," said Lucy Duni, Vice President of Consumer Education for TransUnion's TrueCredit.com. "Bolstered by unlimited access to their own TransUnion credit report and score and the ability to lock or unlock that report right online, this offering is truly compelling for those very concerned about identity theft."

"MyPublicInfo is thrilled to have the opportunity to work with TransUnion and TrueCredit.com to provide customers with this added level of credit management and fraud detection," said Pat Dane, Chief Revenue Officer, MyPublicInfo. "IdentitySweep is primed to become a leader in an environment where identity theft is a prominent concern for the average consumer."

MyPublicInfo's IdentitySweep is the first real-time identity management service for consumers, available for use at http://www.IdentitySweep.com/. The service empowers users to proactively protect their personal information and avert identity crimes through innovative software tools that "sweep" the Internet for their personal information.
