ChoicePoint’s VitalChek Signs Applicant Authentication Agreement with 100th Government Agency

Brentwood, TN (PRWEB) January 4, 2008

VitalChek Network Inc. (vitalchek.com), a ChoicePoint (NYSE: CPS) company and America’s leading source for government-issued birth certificates and other vital records, has signed its 100th government agreement with the Larimer County Health Department in Fort Collins, Colo., to provide ChoicePoint’s ProCheck and ProID knowledge-based authentication products. The products will assist in efforts to reduce identity theft for birth certificate or other vital record requests. In addition, Larimer County also will use express certificate services offered through VitalChek.

“ProCheck and ProID helps to ensure that your personal information is protected,” said Billy Burn, VitalChek vice president of sales. “Customers may safely and conveniently order vital records online 24 hours a day, seven days a week.”

“We have been increasing the requirements for identification to protect our customers from identity theft,” said Ron Hyman, state registrar of vital events for the State of Colorado. “Some of our customers are in situations where they have lost documents due to fire and storms and need to re-establish their identities, and VitalChek allows them to do that.”

VitalChek’s state-of-the-art applicant verification methods make it safe and convenient to order official copies of vital documents, including birth and death certificates, and marriage and divorce records via the Internet. The ProCheck service verifies the actual existence of a person trying to place an order and helps spot fraudulent identities, while ProID generates an interactive verification quiz that ensures that the person placing an order is whom they claim to be.

Larimer County is the 100th government agency to use VitalChek authentication services. Other agencies using VitalChek authentication services include Virginia Vital Records, New Mexico Vital Records, Colorado Department of Health and Cook County Vital Records, which provides birth certificates for the city of Chicago.
