Have this happened to anyone else?
And then that happened to my husband, so now he's off Facebook.

Bummer I don't know why a social site would ask for such things.

Julie and Sugar, I never heard of such things! I don't use my real name on FB. Big Bubble doesn't use his real name, face, or any of that stuff. And anyone asking for a copy of a federal ID would be breaking the law.

ETA: Sorry, you said FB asked for a Government ID. Well, still that sounds suspicious. I would certainly leave if it came to that.

What's most bizarre is how random it is...because, of course, there are so many FB users who still use obvious pseudonyms.

I found it suspicious too, but after doing a google search, it seems like it has been going on for a while now, and as Julie mentioned, it is very random. I don't use my real name either btw. My SO did send the picture and after that, he was obligated to change his nickname for his real name. During the days his "identity" was being verified his account was completed taken down. I told him to no send it as I was scared, but he needs his FB for work. I use my account to keep in touch with family and friends (we live in different country, so it is easier for me that way) and to buy on VF Roost (back to topic! ), but hopefully I will not get asked for an ID, because I think I'll mostly likely to not send it, and less them to close my account.

For those VF members who would like to be added to VF Roost please private message (here at VF) Sherri "sbh", Rose "bearcatfan", Chris "Cdayley", or me with your Facebook name AND an email address, and we will send you an invitation to join.

The email address does not need to be associated with your Facebook page.

VF Roost is a "secret" Facebook group; it will not be seen on your Facebook page by non-members.

The rules for trading dvds on VF also apply to trading/buying/selling on VF Roost. ie. no scratches, no misrepresentations, no reproduced, burned, or bootleg dvds.

Two Tubs Full of DVD's to Sell

So, I have not worked out at home for years as I go to the gym. Yet I keep moving my 2 plastic tubs FULL of workout DVD's I spent years collecting. So hard to give up...Cathe, Beach Body, Amy Bento and more. What is VF Roost? If I wanted to sell both tubs...not take the time to sell each individual workout...does anyone have any ideas how/where to do that?

You can contact Vf member roleez. She buys Dvds in bulk and resells them individually herself. Or you could sell them in group lots on ebay.
