UPS has instituted a policy that you must give them a drivers license and they input the license # to stay with the package. when complained about their response is "we don't share that" 2 points 1) thats a lie just like airport scanners dont save pictures.

2) It does not matter that you dont share, I DON'T WANT YOU TO HAVE IT!!!. I believe this is another erosion of personal privacy. Your option is to ship elsewhere which i will do but the evil empires will all do the same eventually.

wake up sheeple!!! call and complain, UPS does not need your information.

They started this in 2010 dude. From UPS:

Photo ID Requirement at Retail Shipping Locations

Service Update

The safety and security of our customers, business partners, and employees is of utmost concern. Our approach is a multi-layered approach to security, implementing additional security precautions to protect people, shipments, or our facilities.

As a result, UPS is enhancing security measures around shipments that originate at retail shipping locations worldwide.

Effective December 7, 2010, consumers who originate and tender a shipment to any retail shipping location will be required to show a government-issued photo ID as a form of identification. The photo must match the person tendering the shipment.

This procedure is already in place in some UPS locations and is being expanded to include all retail shipping locations worldwide, including authorized shipping outlets, alliance and MBE locations, plus The UPS Store® franchisees.

Customers who have already prepared a shipping label--for example, through their business or personal UPS account--are not currently required to present an ID.

If sufficient verification of identity is not obtained at the retail shipping location, customers will not be allowed to ship via UPS services. Acceptable forms of ID include:

State-issued driver's license or Department of Motor Vehicles ID

U.S. or foreign government-issued passport

U.S. Permanent Resident Card or "Green Card"

U.S. military ID

Native American Tribal Photo ID

As always, we thank you for your business and for helping to enhance safety.


Driver License is public record. You are dumb for being upset about it.


COREA TRIAL GROUP, a Dallas, Texas based nation class action law firm, have been investigating claims against this company concerning illegal use of your federally protected "personal information" stated on your driverse license and would like to hear from you if you have experienced what you suspect is illegal activities. If so, you may be entitled to legal relief and/or the recovery of damages.

UPS says they have 'relationships' with people that ship on their own number. And they say a credit card will help avoid fraud/deceit.

Oh, OK, so someone picks up a blank ASO at a drop box and pulls a valid six digit number, UPS still has a relationship with THAT person? Uh, huh, sure. No one could figure out that difficult work around. Pure genius!

Just another feel good waste of time.


The whole checking drivers licenses policy is completely pointless:

1) We (ups store) are NOT ALLOWED to record any info off of your ID, nor make a copy of it. I'm not sure where you're going that they're recording your DL number, but that is NOT the policy.

2) The name on the license you present us with does not have to match the return address on the package. People send things with just their business name on the return address all the time, it's perfectly normal.

3) I'm fairly sure terrorists are capable of obtaining fake IDs.

4) We are not allowed to check the ID of a person who is simply dropping off a prepaid shipment. (One that they have already generated a shipping label for, which anyone who has a printer and a credit card can do.)

So if the Feds show up at my store and tell me that some religious nutcase shipped a bomb through my store, and they ask me if I checked their ID, I say what? There is no recourse whatsoever. It was a completely empty public relations gesture in response to that guy who tried to ship explosives in a toner cartridge from Yemen.

Do you feel safer?


Wanna explain why they insisted on having by phone number too?????


how about if someone sent a bomb to your workplace and killed some people? and you ask who did it? and we say, we don't know because they wouldn't show us any id when they shipped their pkg through us.some people just have to complain...



That's just like the devil WALMART needing to scan your VIN number on your vehicle when you go for an oil change. If you have been in there once and they have your vehicle on file when you give them your phone # there is no logical reason they need to scan your VIN at all. They overstep their bounds in alot of ways.!!!
