    VPS hosting provider Solar VPS asking for "[FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica]clean and clearly legible copy of the ID/Passport". And only after - "[/FONT][FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica]After we review the information we can continue processing your order.[/FONT][FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica]" Money was already paid [/FONT][FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica](taken through paypal) for one month[/FONT][FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica]. But no details of the account was given to me yet. I'm not going to break any rules or laws, but still... Sounds a bit...

    So what do you think about this?

    Is this a normal procedure? I'm not a USA citizen btw.
