Is electronic signature a proper/sufficient mean for identification/authentication?

We have received an electronically signed GDPR data request from a person who has only provided his name and surname. We wanted to be sure that this person is who he claims he is, so we have asked to additionally provide his national ID number. But he has refused to do so.

There is a possibility that he may well be an identity thief.

How certain can we be that the one who has used the electronic signature is the real person and not an identity thief? Is electronic signature a proper mean for identification?
