BELLEVUE, WA--(Marketwire - September 18, 2007) - Intelius, Inc., a company that empowers consumers with online information for personal protection and intelligent decisions, today announced that the company has reached another noteworthy milestone and served its five millionth unique, paying customer. This achievement comes just months after Intelius celebrated doubling its customer base in February.

In addition to serving five million customers with more than 10 million secure credit card transactions, Intelius has consistently been in the top 100 most visited sites according to comScore/Media Metrix.
