Need send passport copy via fax to confirm AWS account?

Had anyone the need to send passport copy via fax to confirm the Amazon account? I just received an email saying that my account will be unavailable until I send these info via fax in the next 14 days! But I have not seen anyone talking about conditions here. Any thoughts?

Nope, not here. I live in the US and use a credit card for payments.

Yes, in addition to credit card, they requested passport or any other id.
I had account in Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Services, IBM Bluemix and credit card was enough to create and use the account. AWS is the first time I see where credit card is not enough to get the account approved. Weird because all the service companies are in US.

No I’ve never seen that either. If you’ve already got an Azure account, you may want to just use that.
