This is the thing that got me. The lady is in IT and even after asking her bank and the police about it she did it anyway? LOL This makes no sense. I wouldn't have sent it even if apple verified it was true. You want my passport AND bank statements? You can kma buddy.
I think she wanted to stay anonymous so everyone with a brain didn't make fun of her for the rest of her life.
What even blows me away more is apple's admission that if you don't hand over the info they will cancel your order. WOW.
She sent the information first, THEN had second thoughts and contacted the police/bank. Not very smart though, a Nigerian prince could have gotten rich from that.
I would have just let them cancel the order. I'm not willing to send anything more then drivers licence and censored check with my name on it.
