Hi
I just phoned Nintendo to find out the master key for my wii. They said that they needed proof of age. He gave me his nintendo email address. What should I send?

why would they need proof of age, do you have to be over a certain age or something:?

They need the information of the wii. When I send the details he will give me a ring. How will they know it is me if I send my drivers lisence, should I send a pic of me holding it?

Exactly, stand your ground.

If they want to know you're 18 make them send someone around toyour house.

i dont know how old you are, but if you are over 18 you should know you dont dish out things like this to people you dont know

Hmmm, I've just checked this and it appears to be correct.

As a matter of interest why exactly do you need the master key ?>

just put in your email "I am 26" or whatever your age is. it's probably just a legal requirement and they are just ticking the boxes

That's what I thought until I read again. OP says they will email after they receive proof of age ??

I will hold back for a while but I don't know how sending a copy of my drivers lisence would prove I am over 18. I could easily find one on the internet.

Yes

Well they are the legit people and are fine every time I've had to deal with them.

Tell me again why you need this master key ?

Oh yeh sorry, the previous owner put a pin on it because he had children. I do not know this pin. I would like to download the internet chanel. I also just purchased the maio game which is online. I would like to give this a go as the reviews I have heard are good.

Ok , yep that's the only reason you would need it so all this checks out as being fine.

Will they not accept a scan of proof of age via email or could you not fax it to them ??

I would say you have spoken to your parents and are not allowed to send originals , lol

They usually bend over backwards to help you at Codestorm

Well just scan your driving license or take a close up photo of the relevant bit and email it to them.

Did you read what Sassie wrote ?
Can you not ask the previous owner ??

You only need it for certain things sassie which is why I was asking the questions before.
It's a username /password thingy normally used for parental controls.

Could you not do a master reset or something? :?
