ID Watchdog Announces Settlement of Litigation

DENVER, Aug. 4, 2016 /CNW/ -- ID Watchdog, Inc. (TSX VENTURE: IDW) (PINKSHEETS: IDWAF), including it's wholly owned subsidiary Identity Rehab Corporation (the "Company"), provider of consumer-facing identity theft protection and resolution services, today announced that it has reached an agreement to settle litigation pending in the United States District Court.

Effective November 21, 2014, the Company terminated an arrangement in its Tech Support Channel with its primary third-party sales affiliate (the "Sales Affiliate").  On October 10, 2015, the Sales Affiliate initiated a complaint against the Company in the United States District Court for unpaid fees for customer subscription renewals subsequent to termination, as well as a claim for certain pre-termination fees related to an alleged overpayment.
