Having just attempted (unsuccessfully) to buy a new phone I've found myself up against the old "sorry we don't accept your MOD 90 as a recognised form of ID". Surely it's an offical document which contains a nice little picture of me, signature, DoB and so on. Even more stuff is contained on the new MOD 90's apparantly. The bank I'm with accepted it as a form of ID but mobile phone shops, pubs, clubs and so on don't seem to accept it particulary as a proof of age (what with me looking rather youthfull and all that :P ). Does anyone know why certain companies won't accept MOD 90's as a form of ID?
I think that it's up to each organisation what they accept as form of ID but I know that banks accept it as a form of anti-money laundering identity confirmation. Strange that the mobile 'phone company won't though. Hmm. Name 'n' shame, perhaps?
That would be Orange. They wanted two forms of photo ID which also had a signature on it. To me a MOD 90 fits that criteria... On a side note Vodafone were more than happy to sell me a phone using one form of photo ID however I used my driving license for that one.
I suppose it comes down to what the guys are familiar with. If they don't come into contact with MOD 90's very often then chances are they won't know if it's a fake one or indeed if they recognise it at all. Whereas passports and drivers licence are common place.
perhaps some companies do not accept MOD 90 because unlike a driving liscence, it does not have your address on it. Banks and other firms need a valid address for credit check purposes so that might be why.
Rhodesian which pub are you working at now? I fancy a pint
