Topic - excessive info for job application

Dominicandave on 06 Aug 2014
I had an agency call me last night offering me a job, obviously without thinking on the excitement I jumped at the opportunity. I just said yes to everything without even thinking. And then they sent me an email with attachments to fill, but the documents they require got me thinking a little. Is it normal to request passport front and photo page. 2 proofs of where I live, bills etc. Proof of Nat Ins No.
It has been a long time since I have applied for a job and the whole passport thing threw me into suspicion as now they have pretty much every step of the last 20 years of my life, plus all of my personal info and official info.
These guys could absolutely fleece me if they wanted to with all this info. Open bank accounts, get credit etc. or am I being paranoid, is all this normal?
