When I took the bar exam in each state in which I am licensed. I had to give a full set of finger prints. I suppose they suspected that with a lawyer they might need the prints sooner or later. :-D
So did I and I gave it. That was for liscence to practice a specialized area and with it comes additional responsibilities, and trust from members of the public. So I didnt complain.
What is wrong with you?
You may not have nothing to hide now but one of these days there will be laws passed that makes what you do legally now illegal and then your caught.
I just figured it was some new stupid security thing, call me naive, but I had done nothing wrong and as far as I knew I wasn't wanted by the FBI, so I gave them the stupid thumb print.
A print is transferrable as well. All you need is some scotch tape, which is why I refused. I presume its if the check bounces. But thats what my drivers liscence is for. Since 9/11, NJ has these new picture DL w/ all the bells and whistles for security since most of the hijackers had NJ DL's which were previously a joke.
Besides, a print can be smudged beyond recognition unless the printer knows what they are doing. The bank had no training in printing and i could have just left them an unusable print, but said no on principle.
