One particular large letting agent is requesting new anti-money laundering ID for each new tenancy where they manage it, and for each new instruction prior to advertising a property for letting. My question is, if one section of an organisation has received ID, should that not be enough to cover dealings with the entire company. I have dealt with the company for 25 years, I have not moved house in that time, or changed email address or telephone numbers. And how often show I have to supply it. I fully complied in Oct 2015 and nothing has changed in my address/contact details. I do not like my personal details, passport number, dob, bank statement copies etc winging their way around too many offices, when I do not know how securely they are stored - they are a gift to potential ID fraudsters.
