‘We usually ask for at least three forms of ID,’ said a spokeswoman for the US Department of Commerce. ‘One of the guys had his driver’s licence, but the utility bills were in a different name and they only had the last three months bank statements. He even tried to get us to accept his Blockbuster membership card as ID. Jeez, I haven’t seen one of those things for years.’
Blockbuster has been charged a fee of £3.99 and asked to return the necessary documents by no later than 9pm tomorrow evening.
