Tattoo as ID

True story. I once had a non-member wanting to cash a check written to him by one of our members using tattoo's that he had on his arm and knuckles. Picture ID is normally required for these transactions. The tattoo's did have his first name burned into his flesh. Needless to say. a tattoo is not on most financial institution's list of "acceptable form of identification". I called our credit union member and verified that they had written the check to the person in my office, and we were able to cash the check. For future reference though, I encouraged the person to obtain a non-driver ID as a suitable substitute for his "tattoo ID".

Who says that credit unions can't be fun?
