Quote:

Greetings,
Thank you for your recent order with Liquid Web!

As part of our new order verification process, we require a front and back copy of your credit card and government issued identification (Passport, State issued ID, Driver’s License, etc.). We suggest blacking out the first 12 digits of your credit card number and the 3-4 digit code on the back of the card (CVV) for security reasons.

Please reply to this email attaching the required documents. You can also fax us your documentation to the following number:

Is this legal in the USA? It seams that the whole point of signing up for anything online is to keep you financial and personal identity private and secure. This get removed when asking to send these documents via email. There are many other ways to prove if someone is in USA securely other than going this route.

Anyone using liquidweb who was comfortable jumping over this personal security hurdle and pleased with their choice of hosting?
