Who told you that it was ok to use a scanned ID?  Scanned IDs should only
be used in EXTREME cases: e.g., you live on the wrong end of a continent,
or you cannot travel freely across national borders to meet developers.
Even if there are no other developers in your town, there are enough
German developers that it should be possible for you to find someone
willing to meet with you if you try.
