Rusty, the age verification process is not seriously used for any legal reason.
It just helps ASC to weed out the minors - The rep usually looks at some official document you have with birth date on it that you provide.
it's only for buying and selling, and you don't necessarily have to be verified to sign up for games and play.
It is just a little tool for some particular cases, even though it may look like a big deal it's just a minor constraint you have to deal with, once.
Good luck in you search for a rep.
btw where are you located?
