Simply cdkeys

Just wondered what everyone else thinks about Simply cdkeys asking for a scan of your passport before the will confirm your order? Ordered some MS points from them yesterday and paid via Paypal only to receive an email from them asking for a scan of my passport, no chance. Cancelled the order. Just think people should be allowed to know this police BEFORE they take the order, prefferably in large red letters ;o)

Yes it is, I have looked on the net and found other people with same issue so it isn't just a one off. Have loads of online accounts with companies large and small and never been asked for anything like that.

Tell them you don't have a passport?

They would also accept a driving license and utility bill. No way to run an online business if you ask me, not that anyone ever does

I've never had them asking me for a passport photo, new policy?

Who knows? I have a good credit rating and have lived in the same house for 24 years so god knows why they felt the need to ask for a scan of my passport

Glad it wasn't just me who thought it was strange. If I was trying to buy weapons grade uranium I would understand but MS Points?????

Don't do it it's a trap!!!!!!!!111

Tell them this isn't 1940s Nazi Germany and you won't produce your papers. Rise up against your fascist oppressors.


Personally I wouldn't do it do it because it's pretty big a security risk. Emails can be quite easily intercepted, there is likely no encryption, and you can't trust anyone to keep your data safe at the best of times.

That's exactly what I told them, they declined to respond
