Personal finance security vendor BillGuard (New York) announced today it has received an additional $10 million in financing.

The company, which last month was a "Best in Show" honor at financial tech conference FinovateFall, tracks millions of billing complaints online and via a transaction flagging system directly in electronic statements.
