    When an online bookie is askin for passport number to verify my age what info can they get from it. More importantly can they get my name? I signed up wit a diff. Name to bet 365 and just wondering if I give my passport number to validate my age will they just cancel my bonus?

    Yep.
    They ask to see a copy of the passport to verify your identity, otherwise people would just sign up in different names and get the bonuses every time.
    If you have lodged money or are in credit, you may have problems getting it out.

    Thats only if you have given your passport number previously to verify your account. if its the first time youve submitted your passport they wont have your passprt no on their system.

    Think its a measure by them to combat people closing off accounts which get closed and opening accounts with different bank accounts or addresses cause i have done it with other firms but find bet365 the most difficult to around this.

    I haven't given them my passport before so I should be ok even though name is diff. Had been tryin to take the 200 bonus money out through betfair but it seems that even when I try to loose I can't pick rite:-P
