So, my friend signed up for textbroker as an author (writer), and since they only accept US Citizens, they e-mailed my friend, asking her to send them a copy of her driver's license either through e-mail, fax, or post. She does have a driver's license and is a US citizen, but the thing is, she's scared of identity theft. She says that they can access all her info just with her driver's number, so yea. The risk of identity theft is high. Although Textbroker seems legit and is not a scam, do you think it'd be right for her to just scan her driver's license and e-mail it to them? Do you think she could become a victim of identity theft by doing so? Please help and give us some advice. :|
