I have just had an email from the National Security Screening agency. They want me to certify 2 items for client, such as passport/driving licence.
I will first need to ask client what this is all about, but it is entirely possible he has requested this. I have never met the client in person and had to do online verification for money laundering purposes, so I am in no position to do any more than say I've done this.
I am really unhappy about certifying that these are true copies. Can I refuse? Should I tell client he needs to go to solicitor to do this?
How would you handle this?
