We perform the minimum level of checking documents or related identity proofs for this level member. This level exists so members cannot easily establish repeat anonymous accounts.
This is our most trusted level of membership. It indicates we believe the member is highly trustworthy, having satisfied research into past behavior and/or identity proof. There is a $200 Safety Guarantee for members at this level.
