So basically I got contacted by an affiliate manager who found my website and want me to promote their trading platform.
She asked for both my ID and a proof of address, because they work with cysec.

Is that a scam ? I've promoted several forex platform a few years ago and this is the first time I got asked this
 
What platform was the affiliate manager claiming to be working for?

Dude, you are doing them a favor, not the other way around. Tell them you will rather promote their competitor and you will see how quick they drop their "requirements". lol
 
It depends of the affiliate platform.
From experience I can say that the platforms are working towards KYC process more nowadays.
As individual you can be asked for ID etc, if company then company details.

Anyway you have to be extra cauctious regarding you identity around internet, so I can advise you to PM the website for which this self-called AM is working and ask them for something on the same topic. If he/she replies back towards the same topic you will know if everything is legit.
 
thnaks for all your answers.

The affiliate platform is finalto, and they asked if I can promote markets.com

Ensure the "affiliate manager" is in fact an employee of Finalto before proceeding. Were you contacted from an official source (ie: Email, phone?).

As already mentioned, more and more affiliate platforms are embracing the KYC process to crack down on fraud, money laundering etc, which may explain the request for personal ID.
