About the ID verification, etc. - probably nothing wrong with them wanting to verify your identity before taking an order (although I'd assume they don't HAVE to, the extra security just seems to add protection for the consumer). HOWEVER, there is a HUGE problem with e-mailing this information. E-mail is by no means a secure means of transmitting sensitive information and should absolutely never be used to send sensitive information (such as the complete identity theft package described above) under any circumstances. Fax is a more secure method to send same. Though not foolproof and subject to user error, it's nowhere near as vulnerable.
