Relying on AT&T, Verizon and T-Mob US to protect you from SIM swapping? You better get used to disappointment

Re: In person show ID?

Is that really too much to require?

Ummmm, some of the criminals are making fake ID. Do you trust yourself to see the difference from identical ID, but with different pictures? I myself have not seen the actual IDs, but I have heard that they are very hard to tell the difference. I am not sure that picture ID will meet what the standards should be, but they will meet the minimum.
