Since I recently moved in another country (Italy), I wanted to obtain a local phone number. After I applied online for my new SIM card, I had to provide the telephony company with a copy of an identity document (in my case, my passport) upon receiving my card through snail mail. So, when the courier arrived, I received the envelope with my card and gave him the copy.
In retrospect, I’m thinking that I did something stupid, because, even though the telephony and shipping companies are certified and generally reliable, the courier himself could use this copy for identity theft.
Is it probable that this courier could do something like that, considering that he is employed by a known company and the envelope has his name on it? Or am I overthinking?
