English. Trying speaking it. Words have meanings, that sort of thing.

I’m joining – trying to join, as ever you have to struggle and fight to get past all the incompetence and mistakes every company makes in its desperate effort to commit suicide – Revolut, a FinTech.

They ask for four photos for proof of ID – front and back of passport, pic with yourself and passport next to your face, and then a pic of yourself.

I photo the front and the back, open the passport hold next to my face take a pic and then pic of me.

I send this off (after checking their SSL cipher suite is okay).

“When we said front and back we did not not mean the front and back of the passport; we meant the two pages (authors note – on the inside!) which have identity information.”

“Yes, we do have other people sendng us the front and back!”
