    I would like to verify users account on my website because it's website where real account could be very important to customers.
    It's hard to verify it only by email or SMS because it doesn't prove much. Verification is not required. I was thinking about asking from them photo of their ID card through email? I think that would be the best and most legitimate way, but not sure if legal?

    What's your thoughts on verification?

    Verification is time consuming in my opinion. But if real accounts are vital, then set it up!

    If verification is that vital then yeah you have to go with ID card. I've seen forums that do it so I dont think it is illegal.

    Why not integrate your system with a company like MaxMind that specializes in this type of stuff?
