Confirm ID........background checks ???.......criminal record check ???

I was surfing through the groups and somebody stated that when you agree to be verified using CONFIRM ID, that AdultFriendFinder will do a background check and a criminal record check.

THIS IS NOT TRUE.

But just to make sure, I looked at the form you send in with a copy of your drivers license or passport.

I do not see a spot on that form for people to give consent for anything more than them to verify what is on the ID you send them.

So where did this member get the idea that anybody she meets who is verified has no criminal record ??

Or that they had an enhanced security check when they were verified ??

Play safe.

I have no idea where she got that idea from but I will not give a copy of my personal identification card or passport to AdultFriendFinder with its office which is located half way around the world. Who knows what they are going to do with my ID anyway? People who run AdultFriendFinder are individuals. One or some of these individuals might be up to no good. Well call me paranoid

Huh! Then I guess my Federal Probation Officer was wrong. He told me the same thing---that AdultFriendFinder would do a criminal background information check on me and discover that I was a known felon if I were to confirm my I.D. Just shows to go ya that the Fed’s don’t know everything. For all I know, I can probably still vote, too!

I can understand.

I bet you many of the staff members are paid very low and because of that they have a "dont give a shit" attitude. I read so many stories about people that deal with the customer service, which should be a place that should be very professionally run, and sometimes they fail and fail badly.

I wonder what kind of care you are going to get by the other employees.

In my opinion, when people were ending up in somebodys elses profile, that was a major violation.

    It is impossible to do background criminal checks on members. At least here on the states they need your social security number and that number is not printed nowhere in your licence. And besides, how does anyone does a check on people from all over the world

    ♥Kofla?
Confirm ID is only available to members in Canada and the US.

Kofla, it was in your group where I read that material.

I know that people can find out info about people online, but it all cost money, so AdultFriendFinder would not do it.

I am sorry about your experience.

One day you will meet an honest nice guy.

Some people suggest doing the webcam thing to screen.

I suggest if you want to meet somebody, you dont waste a lot of time. If they are phony, you didnt have much to lose.

If you find out somebody is phony, you walk out.

When you are dealing with photocopies, people can change the info on it.

That is why a lot of places require original documents.

    Really? Wow, where did I miss that? I'll go and check....
It is a topic about stealing pics and profile descriptions.

I didnt bring this up to mock the responder in that post.

I was just wondering where she got this info.

You're right, Steven.

It has nothing to do with a background criminal check.

Thank you for your comment.

I will never do the confirm ID thing.

The latest violation I have heard about is that they are e mailing peoples passwords to the wrong members.

So do you trust these people ????
