This question/statement is related to the above. Firstly, your ID is NOT on the internet, it safe with us. We are not Identity Thieves.
The reason we ask for ID is so we are sure we are working with the authorized card holder. We understand you are not as experienced as us with payment transactions over the internet, so I’ll give you a short rundown.
Online credit card transactions do not have an authorized signature unlike card transactions in bricks and mortar shops.
Therefore, the card companies will not guarantee the merchant (us) will be paid. This definitely applies if the card turns out to be stolen and used by a card scammer. In those cases, all online merchants lose the income from the sale, lose the goods and services provided plus are fined $30.
It’s not a nice experience and has happened to us many times.
Our bank has told us that the only way to prevent this happening is for us to get a copy of the cardholders’ ID and a signed form authorizing the transaction.
That information would be provided to your card company / bank in the event of a chargeback or any other dispute.
It’s not for us to use your card to go and buy some ice creams and movie tickets… we don’t like jail.
The form and the ID are NOT stored online. They are extremely secure
Please, simply complete the form, take a photo of it and your driver’s license with your phone and shoot it over to us. Then we can complete the processing of your order and get on with getting your business some new people.
