Regarding your account "noonlion" with BankrollMob.com

Due to random checks, we can only approve your account if you supply us with a picture of your ID, while holding it up next to your face. This will ensure that we can make a positive identification.

NOTE: We can only approve ID's where your name is visible and written in international text (like this) and not in Russian etc.

Please send an e-mail to *** EMAIL REMOVED BY ADMIN - WE DON'T NEED MORE SPAM (FROM BOTS) THAN WE ALREADY GET Smile *** with your photo attached.
Example: http://www.bankrollMob.com/files/id.jpg

Should you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.


Best Regards,
BankrollMob

I received that and had to get my account approved again despite the fact that I had that done in March.

Seems pretty ridiculous - I don't think anyone is trying to get that many deposit offers lol

Why not forward a copy of your fingerprints and dna analysis too just in case lol? In all fairness, most of these requirements are made by the sites they are affiliated too and not BRM themselves for their own pleasure. The less they hassle you, the more you sign up for, the more money they make.

Hmm, never heared of this before and don´t know why they ask for this.
Maybe Admin can tell you if this is normal and has to be done.
I am the opinion that the first approvement by signing up should be enough.

They must have a reason.. they probably won't share it though. Most likely someone with a similar IP address or something.

Still seems really odd.

This is a poker site not to gain entry to my bank or a country. I'm sure they have their reasons, just wondering if others have had the same thing happen.

If not it's a bit worrying.

Seems odd but I doubt you're the only one. The message reads like an automated message, it asks you not to send russian alphabet ID and they took a photo just for this purpose even though the email would be clear to a native english speaker. Either that or they are going the extra mile to get a photo of your face.

I wouldn't worry. I've been with BRM for 4 years and haven't yet been a victim of ID fraud. There is nothing they could do with this photo they couldn't do with a photo of your ID.

I agree with Jess. It's probably a similar IP or maybe someone who shares your name and dob. It's probably fairly easy these days to get a fake snapshot of someone else's ID online so the only way to prove you are who you say are is to put your face in the photo.

Yeah probably right enough.

It won't be my name being similar I can tell you that lol, never met anyone with the same name.

I guess if people were determined enough they could easily jack someones ID and use it for deposits etc, sjust seems like a tonne of hassle.

Perhaps there was something wrong associated with the activity of your acount and they wanted to be sure that nothing was wrong and that you could continue your normal activity around here without being prejudiced. You know there's always someone who don't have the best intentions and don't pretend to do what the site asks people to do, and that's why Id verification is so important, to disable two acounts from the same person and things like that... Is it possible that you have had another mobster checking his acount through your PC, a friend or something? Giving the same IP to the site, maybe they could have got some kind of suspicious...
