Below this, there's a message that in order to join, I need to fax them a copy of my driver's license and a utility bill.
Now, call me crazy, but pretty much everything sold on Gun Broker.com is also sold at Wal Mart or Bass Pro shops- with the exception of the weapons which are classified and regulated by the ATF (if there are any listed on the site)- in which case these weapons systems are going through FFL's.
I'm no genius, but isn't sending over my full name, address, telephone number, credit card numbers, alternate security questions, drivers license photocopy by fax, and a utility bill a bit of overkill and also a huge security risk if their data were ever compromised by hackers or activists?
So I sent them an email saying I was not comfortable faxing my drivers license and utility bill to a third party fax number, and they replied with the following message:
