Lottery payoff

I subscribed through their website to the VA lottery. $104 per year, if you don't play you can't win.

I've been doing this for years and have never won more than a few dollars.

The subscription process changed recently. They used to send you a check at the end of the year for any small winnings you might have. I usually get a check for $10 or $15. The new process is that you have to claim it within 180 days or lose it.

So I submitted a withdrawal request for my $4 win and said to deposit it to the same account used to pay for the subscription, this was their recommended option. Now they sent me an email that says they can't deposit my $4 because they need my government issued picture ID.

How do I send them the government issued picture ID? Through the US mail. So I can get my $4.

Why do they need a government issued picture ID? In order to protect my identity.

I pointed out to them that if they did not have my identity they wouldn't have to protect it.

It's OK to take $104 from the account without a government issued picture ID, but they need an ID to put $4 in.

The Confederate soldier was peculiar in that he was ever ready to fight, but never ready to submit to the routine duty and discipline of the camp or the march. The soldiers were determined to be soldiers after their own notions, and do their duty, for the love of it, as they thought best. Carlton McCarthy

All these little practical annoyances start adding up, and eventually even patient and reasonable people will throw their hands up and decide that it's just not worth it to play the lottery.
As a good person, I implore you to do as I, a good person, do. Be good. Do NOT be bad. If you see bad, end bad. End it in yourself, and end it in others. By any means necessary, the good must conquer the bad. Good people know this. Do you know this? Are you good?
