Im asking because when i was on bovada i didnt read the terms of the withdrawals and I used different credit cards that i didnt have access to later on and it was a pain in the azz trying to get letters from banks proving that I was the owner.
In general, this is close to Industry Standard. There is even a name for it....Know Your Customers
Much of it will be handled when you first deposit, but further 'clarification' can be expected when you withdraw.
There is a reason for this! If there was little to no 'verification', the basics of it (not only at poker sites
) would be rife with corruption, and money transfers to terrorists, and a wide variety of money laundering.
Under most circumstances you will only need to do this once.
