Buyer wants copy of passport?

I have bought and sold expensive equipment for may years both here on audiogon and on Europe’s audio and I have good feedback on both.
for years buyers was satisfied with photo of the equipment and as a buyer I was to.
Now  buyers wants videos of the equipment playing and also copy of passport and pictures of yourself together with the equipment. Would you accept such demands?
sending pictures of passports to a stranger seems not so comfortable !.?

Thanks for your answers and I will not provide my passport 
I have been asked this passport thing twice recently  so it’s a new thing,
why cant the buyers just accept  my good feedback ....
" why cant the buyers just accept  my good feedback ...."
Because they are trying to scam you and are not legitimate buyers.
Tell this jerk to keep on trucking i would never sell him anything if you do you will be sorry for sure!!!
