What's wrong with showing your ID? It's to stop all the scammers.


Sorry but I would flat out refuse to provide copies of my ID to an online key site and actually have done so in the past. Once you forward them that then you have absolutely no control over what they do with it and most of them use support agents based outside the EU so your legal options would be limited.

Providing a copy of your passport just to get a slightly discounted copy of animal crossing really defies all logic and sense.

Service charges on top of this?
A lot of key sellers do this ID thing, had to do it with cdkeys despite using them for years at one point
Ah. Subscription site. So have I inadvertently subscribed just by getting as far as sign up but not purchase???
Your title is misleading OP - if you buy this game using this smart method - it requires you to sign up to a subcription too and the total price is actually £38.73

Hoping for a £1 offer to sell mine lol
Idiots! Not £35.
Voted cold due to terms and conditions. Wish people wouldn’t vote on just a headline.
£35 is if you sign up to their subscription , best to expire this
Didint know it was a subscription, just trying to help people out as everyones going mental for this!

Apply for a loan, apply for a bank account, use it to work or travel illegally. There are quite a few possibilities actually.

If your passport is available "everywhere" then you need your head examined. The identifying numbers on that document should be kept confidential. Do you not realise is that all someone needs to do to assume your identity would be to Photoshop a different picture over a copy of it and it would be accepted by some online banks, recruitment agents, foreign governments and god knows who else? And in some cases they don't even need to change the picture on it.

Tell me how I'd go about finding my passport number/driving licence details etc online? I'm new to all this and would like to harvest some information.

Agreed. I actually asked them what they would be doing to keep my information safe, and they said their security details were "private". They didn't see the irony of me wanting to keep my details private too, so I've cancelled my order.

I've missed out on a whopping £2 saving, I think I'll get over it.

Because scammers create 1000s of fake accounts, buy codes, try and claim they don't work and resell them. Gamivo and such, even most online banks require taking ID like this, otherwise you could be ANYONE. It might not be for every purchase but they have systems in place to detect new accounts and fluctuations in sales where said scammers might be taking advantage.

It's up to you if you want to give a simple photo to a website that's trying to prevent fraudulent activity, it's up to you how paranoid you are.

That's Gamivo's problem to solve. Unfortunately online merchants in particular can be very lazy when it comes to security implementation. Take 2FA for example. It's a horrendous idea and a gigantic pain in the arse but because customers accepted it through gritted teeth for certain VPN platforms among others, it slowly became the norm.

Emailing a copy of your passport or driver's license to an online support agent and hoping they'll exercise diligence with it is really just asking for trouble though.

2FA is incredibly necessary in the security world, and incredibly easy to setup and use imo. Google, LastPass, Authy etc have always worked briliantly for me in personal and work life.

It's a pain in the arse. It was clearly developed out of laziness and just feels cobbled together at best. I understand the reasons for it but I think it massively degrades the user experience.

By having an app on your phone that you tap 'Yes' to? Surely you're taking about email 2fa. What's it got to do with proving your identity in any case?

What it has to do with proving you identity is that they're both extremely lazy and cumbersome workarounds to counteract issues with fraud and cyber security.

Sorry but that has nothing to do with proving someone's identity, that's just your user experience of 2FA. It can be frustrating I agree at times, for some users, but that's going off topic.

Of course it does. They're both essentially the same thing only one is a far more lo-fi option than the other. Anyway I agree with you that we've gone a bit OT so we should probably leave it here.
