OK, I agree with that. Sending a copy of my Passport would be a "bad idea" as 
it would give out the passport number to who knows whom! So, anyone prepared 
for a quick meet-up one lunchtime in the city centre (when I get back to 
work, of course). I travel in by bus, and my bus pass has my photo on it (I 
had to prove my address and identity to get it)
