  2. Hi David…I work for a financial institution and was looking for copies of ID’s on google. I came up with your CA DL and your passport. Just wanted to let you know that bank tellers are not always the brightest….we accept mailed in verification of ID ~ there’s enough info. (signature on DL…passport number in the lower portion) that any bonehead with Photoshop could totally rip off your identity and open accounts via the mail all over the country in your name. Just an FYI.
