Copy Credit Cards for CIP Documentation

Answered by: 

Question: 
Can banks take copies of credit cards for CIP documentation when opening a new account? I thought this was against regulation? Can you please refer me to written verification?
Answer: 

There is no law against copying a credit card of which I am aware. However, a credit card is a poor form of identification, even secondary identification, as the possession of a credit card does little to confirm that the person presenting the card is actually the card holder.
