Virtual Piggy Comments on Recent Internet Blogs and Articles

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Virtual Piggy, Inc. (OTCBB:VPIG), an innovator in safe youth payments, today commented on content on certain "investor-targeted" internet blogs and sites.

Virtual Piggy has been the subject of recent articles on certain investor websites that present negative information regarding some of our shareholders. These blogs and articles invite the reader to infer that one or more of those investors control Virtual Piggy, Inc., or that the operations or management of the Company are somehow impugned as a consequence of their stock ownership. Virtual Piggy is managed solely by its Board of Directors and management team, whose experience and integrity guide the Company on a daily basis. The Company is aware that some of the authors are people (or firms) who hold a short position in Virtual Piggy common stock. The Company recommends that investors view with a degree of skepticism all articles regarding the Company, both positive and negative; and refer to Virtual Piggy's public reports for definitive information regarding the Company.

The Company believes that it is in its best interests to remain focused on building the business, rather than debating or responding to individual internet websites and bloggers, whose goals may not be transparent. Virtual Piggy will continue its practice of regularly updating the public on its progress.
