Odds someone else has your SSN? One in 7 - The Red Tape Chronicles - msnbc.com
I had someone use my SSN to work.
The only found out because the state sent me a list of all the jobs I have had since I was 18, when I went to court over child support. When I checked the list, there was a job listed that I never worked at, and it wasn't under my last name.
As long as I get to collect the benefits I don't care.
My youngest is going through this hell now. Seems since he was in high school, someone in NY has been using his SSN to file taxes. Instead of a refund, the feds say he owns $8k+. Very frustrating, luckily we have a fraud expert and lawyer in family.
What an airtight system it is. Good thing we're not trying to reform it or anything, and trying to legislate tv commercial volume instead.
It would be very simple to identify the ones that are stolen.
Chasing them down is some jobs right there.
And make it a felony non negotiable 5 yr prison term for using someone elses SS number.
What a collosal fuck up.
Separate names with a comma.
