We use the rule, that userID should contain user's fist and last name 
exactly as in passport, and only one email - the same as used for login.
So we can verify it's really your email.

Actually, we are going make notary verification optional after online 
verification. Online verification works for everyone, but building 
network of notaries takes time.
