Never had to do this on any other online store.
Anyone have any suggestions?
I have been a die hard Aliexpress shopper for the past 8yrs and to date must've spent more than 10k buying from them. I've never had to upload anything but my credit card details.
I have also never been asked for all that information. Sounds a little on the concerning side. Especially your DI or passport. Whats up with that. I don't think I would be giving them or anyone that information especially online.
Yeah that's definately an obvious phising attempt. 1 of many reasons I never use aliexpress. No doubt some sellers on there are honest too many are not. I've run into several running a scam mugging up shipping costs, others selling obviously fake guitars with trademarked names even serial numbers.
