This is the email I received from them after I placed an order (through verified paypal) for Gold.
Thank you for choosing SwagVault for your gaming needs, we value your business.
From time to time, we are unable to process a payment through PayPal or Google Checkout due to various risk factors associated with the payment. Unfortunately, your payment falls into this category and in the interest of protecting customers like you against fraud, we are requesting that you either provide further identity verification, or switch to an alternate method of payment.
To provide additional identity verifiction, please reply to this email and attach BOTH of the following items:
A digital photo or scanned image of no less than 640x480 pixels showing the front of the credit card you used for your PayPal or Google Checkout payment. You may black out all but the last 4 digits of your credit card number and resize/crop the image as needed, but do not alter the image in any other way.
A digital photo or scanned image of no less than 640x480 pixels showing the front of your government issued identification card, driver's license, or the ID page of your passport. You may black out all digits of the card number and birth date and resize/crop the image as needed, but do not alter the image in any other way.
Make sure that the images you submit are clear, focused, and easy to read. The cards should occupy at least 80% of the image area. Low quality images that are hard to read, heavily compressed, or contain excessive artifacts will not be accepted. Please note that our request does not compromise the security of your personal or financial data since you are to black out the sensitive parts of the images before sending them to us. The information we are requesting are what you've already provided - we simply seek to verify it.
If we do not receive the above requested identity verification information from you within the next 12 hours, your PayPal or Google Checkout payment will be refunded to you in full.
If you would like to continue your order by submitting payment using an alternate method and are located in the US, you can send a money order by following the directions at the following URL:
