If I got a message from Facebook or Instagram telling me I had to upload a picture of my drivers license to regain access I think I’d be sure it was some sort of phishing scam. And if anyone actually complied I’d think they were web rubes, like folks who think the dude in Nigeria really needs them to dicreetly move his 5 million dollars from America to Luxembourg. But the joke would be on me because Facebook and Instagram are really doing this.
