Clients Asking for Personal Documents Normal?

Hey Odesk Family - I just had a client ask me for identification to prove both my nationality and level of education (specifically, they were asking for a copy of my diploma/degree). I've never been asked this before, and as a Canadian freelancer, I am naturally concerned about things like identity theft. Is asking for this sort of documentation a normal and permitted practice on Odesk? It just seems a bit questionable to me! Any thoughts?
