    You should NEVER scan your id and send it to ANYONE. I would flag this site and send a complaint to the IC3 (internet crime complaint center – part of the FBI). here is their online complaint form: https://complaint.ic3.gov/ctf.aspx

    They make it seems like its a general process followed by a lot if other websites. But it is actually a kind of fraud, and a crime. But according to me, what they are trying to do is that keep the users info, and try to contact them if the user decides to trick the site and file a claim thru paypal for hundreds of dollars of bids. i would say its a caution thing to do because the users that usually file a claim, change their address and other information so that the site owner cant bug them to clean out the claim. But after hearing about ipennybid trying to sue PAW… they dont seem to be more concerned about their security.
