    My account in GD is locked. They want me to upload a scanned ID picture to submit. It sounds weird!

    They will lock you if there is a discrepancy with how you paid.

    Next up... the GoDaddy full body scan. If it wasn't for your account being locked I would've thought it was some lame phishing scheme but unfortunately this one sounds legit. Good luck with it!

    Are you sure you only change DNS ???

    Normally GoDaddy do this when you change Whois information to prevent somebody stealing your domains.

    Well people keep posting GD coupons here so it's no wonder actually that threads like this one pop every now and then. I also had to learn my lesson the hard way.

    I think I'm the only one who likes GoDaddy :confused:. I did scaned my id's and everything about 3 years ago (maybe more) ... never had an issue with them ... I have had about 30 domains with them, hosting, email accounts, sold domains through them, i have autorenewals ... support always responded very fast with possible solutions and further questions if they we're nececery. I'll stick with godaddy nomatter what everyone says. I think it's great :eek:

    That is because they are ok for folks that don't mind their info bein shared and so. Just like Paypal, it saves time and money on transfers, esp. international ones, but a real pain when you want to stay just as anonymous as when you are paying cash.

    It's natural to assume that 2 IPs 2000 miles apart mean some clueless dude's account got hacked but that's not the 'protection' a blackhatter needs. If my account becomes compromised I'll blame nobody else but myself for being careless.

    ICANN's rules are clear, you must state your personal info or risk using the domains IF icann themselves raise hell. It's not the registrar's job to ask for IDs and stuff like that. And certainly it's not its job to blackmail you in the lines of "the ID or the highway". So all the negative responses are addressing their BH unfitness nothing else. Except for the domain snatching when you check availability but the majority of the registrars seem to be doing it anyway.

    There is a recent thread where a guy is being asked to put his ID next to his face and hold a sign with numbers... what kind of a monkey trick is that? (It's not GD in this case)
