    I was reading a post from VWM (in the purple lounge deposit method thread) about verification procedures that request photo ID.
    Why do some online Casinos want photo ID when they will never know what you look like or ever see your face?
    I don't get it :confused:

    As for me I think they have no need to see your face - they want to see information from your ID (First-Last name, personal #, etc).

    They are covering their backsides for money laundering regulations. Occasionally it also catches the less competent fraudsters.

    They request your photo ID to avoid bonus hunters.

    How would they know? If said teenager had access to their parents credit cards, they would certainly have access to their drivers license/photo ID.

    They keep the photo on file, possibly on an industry database.
    If the same "identity" signs up elsewhere, but the photo looks like a different person, this indicates that one of the accounts is false (they cannot tell which one at this stage.
    Identity thieves often use their own photo, but with stolen ID details, when making up or requesting supporting documents in order to use the stolen ID fraudulently. This method has been shown on a number of TV documentaries as to how someone can get in under a false passport. They have a good chance if they can pass the visual check of passport photo against their looks (unless the original person has reported their passport stolen, or their ID misused).
    Theft of personal details is relatively easy, but theft of the person's likeness to be used with new documents is far far harder.

    In short, there IS something to be gained by asking for photo ID in the fight against fraud, even though the casino will never see you in person.

    They might, but you need supporting evidence not more than three months old.
    You could find getting it renewed is what they ask for, but a bus/train photo travelcard would be cheaper.
    Applying for a photo driving licence would be an alternative, slightly cheaper than a passport.

    This could become more inconvenient if you have no other photo ID, and asked again for it when the passport is far more out of date.
