NATIONAL SECURITY!!!!! That is the funniest thing I have read I have read today!! What in god's green earth could an online vendor wanting to see my driver's license have to do with national security?????
I am sorry...there is a thing called PRIVACY, and a vendor asking for my driver's license is violating my privacy.
Do this for me...call your credit card's 1-800 customer service number and talk to a rep. Ask them "does an on-line vendor have the right to request a copy of my driver's license prior to running the charge or shipping the item"???
I would be stunned if they don't tell you that they have never heard of such a practice. As I said, I have bought many thousands of items online. Nobody, ever has asked me for my ID.
They have the right to ask for:
- Bill to and ship to being the same or the ship to listed with the c. card. co.
- The 3 or 4 digit code on the card
- The customer service number on the back of the card
- card holder's name, address and phone number
That's about it. When they have that information, they have met the credit card company's requirements for the purchase, and they are covered.
Has anyone else ever heard of any vendor anywhere asking for a copy of a driver's license??? Birth Certificate??? Passport???
I am sorry, but that is preposterous!
