Pretty crappy pay
I wouldn't get out of bed for that money. It's no wonder he scammed them.

It is to limit the damage done by forgers overcoming security vulnerabilities in passports. As time progresses new printing technologies and RFID technology make newer passports much more difficult to forge. By only allowing unexpired passports you guarantee that proof of ID is accepted only using documents less than 10 years old.
It's all a pathetic game by the US government. Over twenty years ago I worked for two US equipment and software providers putting intercept equipment in Belgacom's infrastructure on behalf of US and UK authorities. We were collecting metadata before people knew what it was to DLT tape. The Germans were at, too. When Schengen came along the Schengen database people hired the same companies to do the same. Christ GCHQ can't walk by an undersea cable without bugging it. The US knows end to end encryption is the proper response and this ban the Chinese crap is nonsense.
The UK system is a much more capable system (well, hopefully) than the system being used in parts of Austria. It requires improvements to the EE infrastructure, bespoke handsets from Samsung and software services from Motorola. On paper it is very advanced and it will have hardly any reliance on drop in temporary infrastructure. The UK system has to operate 12 miles offshore.
