with our existing ability to provide legal services to our members on a 24/7
basis, we offer a combination of products and services that cannot be matched
by anyone else at this price and with this level of service," said Pre-Paid
Chairman Harland Stonecipher.  "We see this continued relationship as a
combination of the best in legal service benefits with the best in identity
theft solutions."
    "We are delighted to continue our partnership with Pre-Paid Legal
Services to offer their clients high-quality access to identity theft related
benefits through Kroll's fraud experts," said A. Michael Rosen, President of
Kroll Background America Inc.  "Through Pre-Paid, North American families have
yet another valuable product to help achieve greater financial security and
peace of mind."
