    They are asking for these two things.

    I hate to know that they have me by the balls if anything ever went awry they would have all my personal information.

    Ofc the excuse is that it is to stop fraudsters but I always wonder what happens to my info, I watched a program recently about identity theft so am all the more suspicious of stuff like this.

    It feels like a stranger asking me to trust them to 'take care' of these personal documents.

    There are plenty more affiliates out there but this is one of the only ones who offers specific marketing features id been looking for.

    I have only sent ID/utility bill to Paypal, and I would walk away from anyone else asking for such documents.

    Yesterday you were worried the porn mafia were going to hunt you down and kill you.

    Today you are talking about giving your ID to a porn industry company.

    Maybe you should find a different niche?

    I used to get that alot with gambling sites when I was doing some matched betting, they would always ask for utility and ID, I didnt like it then eitehr but in that case these companies were given the ok first cos the forum was devoted to finding places to get free bets.

    In this case porn is known for fly by night shavers and fraudsters so I don't really trust giving that stuff out. They have apparently been around since the 90s this specific website, still doesnt make me much happier about giving that info.

    I definitely wouldn't give a porn site a utility bill of mine.

    If they are offering better marketing features than other affiliates then it could be too good to be true?
