So i seen this on my account To comply with regulation, we need you to verify your credit account by providing proof of identity.


There looking for proof of id driver license, proof of address a bill and then they want your pps number seems sketchy to me.

Could you post the text of what is on your account? It's normal/legitimate for a lender to want to see the proof of ID and address, as well as your PPSN (the last one is for the Central Credit Register)

It doesn't really matter where they deliver or provide services from, if they want to lend money in Ireland, they have to follow the Central Bank of Ireland rules.
