    MLM Company asked for my Photo ID. Is that fishy ?

    I joined a MLM company that sells Online advertising.

    Is it normal for a MLM Online advertising company to ask for Photo ID like your passport or Drivers License Photo ? Smells fishy to me. I haven't submitted any Photo ID or spent any money with them. Am I being overly cautious ?

    Providing confidential information to people that operate in an area of questionable ethical standards is never a wise move.

    I can not see any reason they would need a photo - they are an online company and would probably never see you in person.

    You could always send a photo of somebody else

    There's no reason to supply a photo ID. I'd pass on this company and move on to a more reputable one.
