They used to ask for company letterhead, and there is no reason 
on earth they should be asking for photo ID. The password you
had on your account should always be sufficient. Due to 
non-existent US privacy laws, they are not equipped to handle
photo ID from any other countries where privacy is protected. 

The privacy laws regarding opt-in data sharing in any EU country, 
or even Canada are examples of this. 

Fax them a letter letterhead, and if that doesn't work, sue your
previous employer for the handle, and all costs associated with 
having it returned to you.
