    Still not validated...
    And I found out why. I tested it by switching to my maiden name - left everything else the same. It took. **sigh** Of course I had to switch it back since I can't cash a check in my maiden name.

    Can't they just kill this feature since they are supposedly bypassing it so we can get paid? I hate logging in to that damn message...

    Anyone else STILL not validated? Or am I the only one?

    You're not the only one. I have the same problem but I've just stopped worrying about it. As long as I get paid that's all that counts. I'm quite prepared to provide info to prove I am who I say I am, so the ball is in their court. Don't let it bother you - hopefully everything will be sorted out eventually.

    I used to be validated. Then I had the audacity to move, so now they can't validate me anymore.

    Is anyone else still not verified/validated, or is it just me?

    Still offering custom titles Haiko? I'd like mine to be "Not Verif-Lidated". :-)

    I guess as long as the checks keep coming, it's OK, but I'm getting really tired of being told I don't exist every single time I check my stats.

    I'm still not verified either - though obviously I was able to cash the checks made out to my company name and I was able to successfully set up direct deposit.

    Yeah, I can cash the checks, get them in the mail, and my bank and the IRS and the credit card offers seem to always be able to find me. Yet...still not veriflidated!

    I'm not validated either. I've lived in the same place for the past 4.5 years. My account information has never changed. Still, nothin'. It's beyond annoying. I want direct deposit, but because they can't figure out that the person who has been cashing their checks for over four years at this address, is the same person on the account, I have to suffer. It's so incredibly stupid.

    'Scuse me but what is being validated? I pay very little attention to my LS account but I do know their new Link Synergy system won't work half the time and not through FireFox which is irritating so I just ignore it. I have tried to get direct deposit working but can't find it anymore even though I've cashed a few checks since it started (that seemed to be the prerequisite). Is this because I'M not verified?

    Any explanation would be greatly appreciated.
    Peace,

    I'm still not validated. I E-mailed LS and told them the info was correct, and if they couldn't verify it, it was on their end. They told me they knew there were issues, and to not worry about it for now.

    So, I'm not going to worry about it. It is annoying seeing that page everytime you login, though...

    Too many. I'm not validated either. It's a minor annoyance, but I'd still like to see it fixed.

    If it truly is their problem and not our problem, then I wish they'd do away with the "you've been mis-Athena-fied" screen every time us undesirables log in. :-(

    I wouldn't care, except it's preventing me from getting direct deposit.

    You can still get DD without being verified - I do.

    There's a thread here with instructions somewhere - maybe in the stickys

    What I read - and no idea where - is that some merchants automatically decline you if you're not verified, as they assume you're one of the "baddies" that the verification process was supposed to expose

    Oh, you're right. After all these months of validation errors, I didn't bother to scroll down on that page to see if there was anything new on the page. I don't know how long the Direct Deposit info has been there, but it's there now, all right. Thanks!
