A few years ago I verified my ID using the credit card option. Now my ID is no longer "verified" by Proz and I have to reverify it (again using the credit card option). What happened? Does the ID verification expire every so often?

Did you edit your profile? Jun 15, 2006

Hi Samuel,
There is no expiration date on a VID check, but it is removed when you change certain profile details (first name, name, or user name).
Check out the relevant FAQ entry.

HTH, Ralf

I used to trade under my marriage name (Murray-Smit), but that had caused endless problems since the name isn't officially recognised in South Africa. So I reverted back to my official surname (Murray). I guess I'm gonna have to fork out that EUR5.00 again.

Hi again,

I used to trade under my marriage name (Murray-Smit), but that had caused endless problems since the name isn't officially recognised in South Africa. So I reverted back to my official surname (Murray).

Now that would explain the missing VID.

I guess I'm gonna have to fork out that EUR5.00 again.

Not necessarily - submit a Support Request.

Best, Ralf

How about switching to Member while you're restoring your VID? Jun 15, 2006

Hi Samuel,

Some of us have an excess of BrowniZ points that we are allowed to give away to folks to join ProZ as Members for the first time. I'd be particularly delighted to share some of those BrowniZ points with you, in particular, as I've "known" you since my now long ago Lantra days. I realize you probably have volumes of BrowniZ points yourself, but, just in case you'd like to use some of mine, please let me know and I'll send you an invitation.

Yolanda
