Anyone have any ideas how to verify identification or how to deal with an out of state customer.... I received a phone call from a man who lives out of state and has recently purchased a property here where I live. I am requiring a 60% deposit on the work before I start. Anything else I ought to do? I would love to hear from some of you on how you would deal with this and any ideas you have, on how to protect myself, will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
