Request to provide photo of government ID

I've sent a proposal for a job and was requested by the buyer to send a photo of back and front of government ID. Is this safe? Thank you for your help!

Hello,

 

I've had this issue on another website. I went with my instincts & did not provide the details. I was worried they may steal my identity.

I cannot see any reason why someone would need your government ID. As long as PPH are happy with you saying who you are there's probably no reason why prospective employees would need ID.

 

Hope that helps :)
