I miss the days when 'Gokunming' was the 'go to' site to get helpful information and postings. Glad us' old timers' got together to see what was going on with this topic.
Good Job!

Personally (IMHO) it sounds extremely strange if not highly questionable that WeChat demands a second bank card for verification, when AliPay does not. It seems highly intrusive.

WeChat already requires real name ID (Chinese ID card or passport). That's verification #1. The bank card is then verified with the bank. That's verification #2. We use mobile phones, which requires real name ID aka anonymous burner phones are illegal in china. That's verification #3. So adding yet another bank card for verification #4 - epically suspicious.

My wechat wallet had the same issue as above, but I noticed a few minutes later it was working again, guess it was some type of glitch in their system?

I don't believe this.

After submitting all of my personal information just 3 days ago, WeChat came on and asked for it all again today.

This is crazy!
