Some years ago, I created an e-gold account and transferred some gold into it. e-gold's service has been suspended in 2009 for legal issues. Now, they offer a VAP ("Value Access Plan") to let me obtain dollars worth the amount of gold in my account.
The catch: As a German citizen, I have to specify my full address, my date of birth, my personal tax ID, and submit a copy of my photo ID as well as a proof of residence.
Is it safe to do that, i.e. will that associate my data with a criminal organization? In particular, if I ever want to become a US resident, will that put me at a disadvantage?
