I understand the concerns of everyone who is weary of the verification process on this site so I'm writing the review just to clear up the issue. I work for a very large company that sells lawn equipment and generators and we implement a similar kind of verification process to weed out any fraud. People use others credit cards and accounts all the time and this verification helps to keep the customer secure as much as the seller. In the case of card closet, it's entirely necessary for them to verify because they deal with money codes. They need to cover their business with proof like that because anyone can grab the code, spend the money and turn around and claim they never authorized the purchase through PayPal or their credit card. Having your id and photo on file to show that, yes, you actually made the purchase is proof that they can use to dispute any charge disputes made by the customer. I purchased amazon gift cards on this site yesterday and submitted my verification. The whole process took all of 15 minutes and I got my codes. After I claimed the codes I got a message from PayPal asking me if I actually authorized this purchase. If I had said no and they didn't have proof of my I'd and photo and PayPal took back the money, the company would have no way of proving otherwise. I'd be more concerned about a site like this that doesn't have any kind of verification. With online shopping becoming the norm, there are more and more people who will take advantage of the anonymity and commit fraud. If you can't handle the extra steps it takes for companies to protect themselves and the consumer, then drive to the store.
