Money transfer service Azimo asks for a copy of my passport. I sent it, after having written 'copy' on it, for security reasons. My transfer then was rejected, because 'We weren’t able to verify your document on this occasion'. My questions are:
- Do (UK based) money service companies have a legitimate need to ask for an ID copy?
- If so, according to UK security legislation, do I have the right to write on the copy, eg: 'Copy for Azimo money transfer 23042020'?
