Do clouds do KYC?

iirc my aws asked for no hard to falsify identifiable information other than credit card details.

KYC is imperfect but adds to a hackers hassle...usually deters people if the competitor is easier to sign on to.

From my insurance days we used to find a phone call was a great way to deter fraud (the surname and accent could trigger an alarm for any semi experienced call centre handler) ...although no doubt hackers with their social engineering skills may not be as vulnerable to this.
