While scanned ID should be as a last option, Some times due to screening alert from our system we ending up to do so. Of course in most cases we will rather let the order go into the system without additional verification to allow smooth order experience for our customer. Yet, Some times its still needed unfortunately.

I believe the world is moving in a direction that will make the scanned ID verification of hosting / VPS / dedicated servers customers mandatory for everyone in the future.

Look what ICANN is doing - they want to have mandatory email and phone verification for domain owners now. I can't really fault them for this, but this is just the general direction in which things are moving. There will be less and less anonymity on the internet in the future.

The rate of spammers are increased from last few years, so i guess its correct idea to have scanned copies of their identity along with Phone verification.

True, but we cant have the best of both worlds, we cant be anon, but then we need to be confirmed because scammers will be all over it, there has to be a inbetween, but that is up to the ICANN guys i suppose.

Dont forget 'Chip and Pin cannot be breached' they kept saying, what has the scammers managed to breach 'Chip and Pin' No matter that security ICANN or others come up with and implement, you will always have someone that will find a way to breach it

If you fail the initial system fraud check, you might get a call, but if it all looks to strange and you flag as a high risk, we want a call and ID, you never know and you have to be careful since fraud is on the rise.

I agree with easy hosting and to add to this, the more a hosting company stands to loose if you bail, is the more rigid they would (and should) be with account setups. If you are from a high risk country, you may not actually be in the business of scamming, but your location is labeled that way so hosting providers would tend to request ID in those circumstances
