So I was considering becoming a GAN (Global Ant Nursery) Farmer. If you don't know what this is, it's a way to sell ants. When I go to the Ants Canada site to sign up, I fill out all the forms and what not. Then I see this.



Proof of Identification/Address.
I really don't want to give them a pic of a drivers license, as I feel that is too much private information. Is there another way to do this? A letter that states my name and address?

Thanks in advance.

Just take a picture of some mail you got.  They want to make sure you are actually from where you are selling.

You should also be able to copy your license and black out the number, but like you I would not be willing to give them that much personal information.

When I sold a few colonies I send a photo of my Drivers Licence with all the important information blacked out. Only gave address, name, and State. 


Current Colonies:

Camponotus Noveboracensis: 4 Colonies

Camponotus Pennsylvanicus: 2 Colonies

Formica Subsericea: 1 Colony

Prenolepis Imparis: 1 Colony

 

Looking to Buy:

Any Pheidole Colonies

Camponotus Castaneus

Camponutus Subbarbatus

I provided an amazon invoice. Any receipt or mail with your address is enough information, they want a picture of any tangible letter that shows your address so they can prove you live where you claim.

Hit "Like This" if it helped.
