Today my wife and I went to Victoria Secrets to exchange a item,the sales clerk was helpful and polite. She asked for a drivers license and when my wife gave it to her, she swiped it on another machine several times.
We asked her why she is swiping the drivers license and she said that it was company policy and it is a company requirement. The swiping of the drivers license goes to a third party and is kept in a data bank. We did not mind showing the drivers license but, we do mind swiping it for a third party. At a time when people are protesting Arizona for requiring identification when for committing a crime, we are requiring citizens to have their drivers license swiped into a data bank for returning a item.
I called Victoria Secrets customer service (614) 577-7111 and they confirmed the policy. I informed Victoria Secrets that we will no longer shop at their stores as long as this policy is in effect.
