Hello Milepoint, I signed up for an Amex Bluebird card so I can start trying to add some Vanilla Reloads to it and pay my mortgage. A week or so ago, I was home so rather than drive to a Walmart, I registered online to have a Bluebird card sent to me. A few days passed and I got an email saying before they can send me a card, they have to verify my identity. Therefore, I have to mail, fax, or send a secure email that includes a photocopy of my: driver's licencse or passport? What? Does this sound right to you ? Did anyone have to do this? It just sounds a bit sketchy that I have to send a random stranger a copy of my id (I mean, they still don't know if it's me or not - I could be sending someone else's id - which I'm not). Thanks for any information you can provide. I always get the best and most helpful answers here.
