I opened an account at Heritage a little over a year ago, and recently requested a withdrawal. I was told I needed to be "verified" and that I must provide a copy of my identification (front and back) and a utility bill, and also a credit card even though I deposited using Bitcoin. My initial thoughts screamed scam, as why the hell do they need that?
I recently withdrew funds from 5Dimes and had to go through the BS phone and email verification, but they never asked for ID, utility bill, or credit card, and as both are in Costa Rica I must assume it isn't a law. (As if there were such things in Costa Rica)
Is this normal procedure there? Has anybody had difficulty getting their funds from Heritage?
With identity theft as rampant as it is, this gives me serious pause.
Appreciate any thoughts on this matter.
