No one pries into your personal affairs—no one fingers your driving licence and passport—no one rings you at home in the middle of the night—and that’s the way it should be!
One of the nice features about e-gold is that there’s no need to go through the tedious and extensive verification procedures required when opening a bank account. True, you’re asked to provide some personal details, but these details are not verified. No busy-body runs around prying into your personal affairs, insists that you to come in for an interview, fingers your driving licence and passport, and rings you at home in the middle of the night to verify that you live at the designated address.
Since e-gold doesn’t loan you any money and all transactions are irrevocable—they cannot be reversed—“who you are” doesn’t matter. And that’s the way it should be!
