Default New Account Requirements - ID Verification

Hello,

Recently I have been having some trouble creating ghost accounts as Amazon has been asking for a drivers licence or passport to verify the identity as part of the account application.

I have been looking for a way to bypass this but I haven't been able to come up with any kind of solution yet. What I did discover in my research was that there may be a pattern regarding Amazon's account verification requirements. I found that threads that were opened on this forum about this specific issue were clustered around certain dates.

5 threads were opened between July and November of 2017
2 threads in February of 2018
4 threads from June-July of 2018
2 threads opened today (02/20/2019)

I have opened 3 accounts in the past that have not required any verification;
December of 2016
September of 2018
December of 2018

I have also opened two different ghost accounts this week, both required ID verification.

Has anyone else picked up on what might trigger Amazon to implement the requirement of ID verification?

I can't wait till they switch back to the old way so that I can stock up on some new ghost accounts!

PS, this is definitely not a problem with account linking as all accounts have their own devices, IP addresses, Business addresses, CC ETC...

There will be no switch back, we will all need to find ways to deal with the almost inevitable verification as the account is created and before they will let you make your first sale.

I'm pretty sure that the rules over in Europe are a bit different.
Over there they made it a rule to verify ID long ago while in the US they have been switching on and off

Its been pretty standard the ID + bank statement request for years.

The business license + utility request has only been recently introduced by probably 1-2 years

As I did mention in my first post, I have opened my first three accounts without being asked for ID verification
