PGGM = ?

Re:

Tried booking a simple domestic reward flight and got error message, called up and they said my account is being audited and I need to send in my driver's license. I just did through the comment section as per rep suggestion and she said I need to wait a few days. Anyone have this before?

FWIW I never sold miles but I did do PGGMs and, when I booked dummy flights I used the wrong bday on myself. I have a hunch this is what caused it - booking flights with different birthdays for myself even though they were all cancelled ultimately. Thoughts?

If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.
