I'm sorry but I think the OP is missing the point that almost all providers are STILL going to require his name, city and state to meet with him regardless of what verification board he belongs to, especially in Chicago!
That's how we screen you and that's how we leave a trail for the authorities to find you if our body turns up somewhere.
That's how we screen you to make sure you are not LE.
That's how we screen you to make sure you are not the Disney Land or CL killer et cetera.....
That's how we have recourse if you rob us or beat us up during a meeting.
Sorry if I'm duplicating what anyone else has said, but I don't think this point is coming through and newbies seem to have the hardest time with this issue as well.
