After creating an account on digital ocean I got an option to verify my account. I filled in the details and got an email after few hours saying this -
We are excited to have you as a DigitalOcean customer. Thank you for the information you have provided thus far. To help us verify your identity, please send us a photo of you holding your government-issued photo ID or passport to firstname.lastname@example.org with this ticket’s ID in the subject.
I have already made a paypal payment of 5 USD as well. I know you have given a reason in the email but that doesnt seem good enough to me. May I know why would you need my Picture with my id but when my friend signed up for Digital ocean you guys never asked him for an Id. Why are u asking me for an Id? Seems Strange to me.
