I ordered a phone from Aliexpress. I was fully prepared to wait for a while for it to arrive. But they closed the order due to a security issue. I can 'appeal'. This involves sending a photo of my driving license or passport and a photo of the payment card or statement. The Amex payment went through fine even with a 'secure' check.
I've never had this with any other site. Any one else had this? I'm not really comfortable sending them those details.
It doesn't appear to be a scam page as that was my first thought
PS. I forgot to mention there is already another purchase from the on the way from the same card (Android box)
