How to Become a Verified Bidder for Patrick Adair Design Auctions
If you've ever wanted to get your hands on an exact ring from a video, you need to be a verified bidder. This gives you access to bid in auctions for rings that were specifically made in a video. To be clear, these aren't a recreation of video rings. These are the exact rings you see featured in the video.
The reason we have to verify you is that these rings will typically sell for large amounts of money, and we want to make sure that bidders are actually serious. The primary reason for this is that its not uncommon to have trolls ruin auctions with fake bids. We will use the income verification to make sure we don't accept a bid you can't pay for.
How to Become Verified:
1. The first step is we need to verify who you are. To do this we will need a verifying document (some form of official ID: university ID, Driver's License, Pass Port, etc.). We don't need any of the numbers or personal information. We're looking for your name and photo verification which will be compared to the income verification.
2. The next step is to verify you're maximum eligible bid. For this, we need a verification of the amount you want to be eligible for (keep in mind a lot of bidding starts at $2,000.00). This can be done using a bank statement or credit card limit that shows only your name and closing balance (or credit limit). Again, we don't need to see the account number, transaction details, or any other personal information.
3. Email these two documents to Alex@patrickadairdesigns.com.
Please note that Alex receives a lot of emails, and he should not be reached out to regarding general customer support concerns. If you do email him with a generic question that is better suited for customer support, he has to forward it to the customer support team to make sure it's handled properly, so it will actually increase how long it takes for a response.
4. Upon receiving your documents, Alex will walk you through the steps needed to see the auction. Once you're accepted you will be added to a private Facebook group and/or Instagram Group where all approved bidders will be able to communicate and share their bids, If you don't have a Facebook or Instagram please let Alex know and he will help find a custom solution for you.
