Any business people here familiar with the FTC Red Flag Rules?
I'm asking because a local business--one I have done business with for 20 years-- insisted that they needed to copy my DL before providing service. I refused, pointing out that they have known me for 20 years and if they insist on copying my DL I'll go elsewhere.
They claimed it was "a new law." I told them I would give the DL if they showed me the code. They gave me a url to an FTC web site, which does not seem to me to put a requirement on them to collect DL info that way.
FWIW, this was a professional; e.g., doc or dentist.
Anyone know how the "red flag rules" are actually supposed to be implemented and when (if ever) it is appropriate for a business to insist on a copy of a DL?
Again FWIW, I refused and told them I'd go elsewhere and they relented, supposedly just this one time.
So, I need to understand this better than I do.

Why argue with the 9mm vs. .45 issue? Carry the best of both worlds with some 40 cal !
Stay safe out there - the Constitution needs you!
If this RED FLAG RULE is applied by plumbers, electricians, and other small businesses as well on the grounds that they extend credit for a brief period, we will all be vulnerable.
I have enough "trouble"with the idea or practice of giving up my DL to a doc. With no disrespect to tradesmen, I sure don't want to be asked to give it up to the plumber or electrician.
Will write my critter as soon as I calm down a little.
This one truly is an outrage if it is requiring that clients allow business people to make copies of their DLs.
