Gun Broker ?????

Just signed up on Gun Broker. Game them all the info they requested on their registration form, but after receiving the confirmation email and clicking on the "activate" button, I entered my password and it returned a message that they could not confirm my identity and wanted me to send them a copy of my drivers license or a utility bill. Are they kidding? Did any of you have to do this?

The FFL system of transfer should be sufficient.

I didn't have to do any of that. I was signed up ready to go in a matter of minutes. Something sounds strange.

I never had to do anything like that when I registered.

I went back and logged in. It let me in and showed my userid, but did not ask for additional anything.

That other message really set me back. I'm a very cautious internet user and try hard to avoid fraud/scams. Maybe it will be ok. I guess I'll know for sure if/when I try to purchase something.

Still waiting to see what Sweetie's medical bills are going to be, but this looks like a pretty good deal.

Free shipping, no credit card fees, free Kimber range bag ($52 at Midway USA)

Sometimes registration on sites does that. I've bought a few guns from Northern Firearms. No problems. They re the internet side of Reeds Sporting Goods Reeds Sporting Goods: Family Outdoor Outfitter

Very reliable, no problems.

Thanks for the feedback. That is helpful. Hope to know the $$ situation by next month. Then I can shop in earnest.

OK, so maybe not everything is well with GB. Signed back in, tried to send a message to a dealer than this is what popped up.

An email has been sent to customer service.

My guess is that it is just a matter of some information does not match exactly.
Between shipping and bill to info: Name, address, etc.
