Responding To Customers Asking About Your Company’s Use of SSNs

Wednesday, December 19th, 2007

For the past 10 years I have been driving the same, reliable, non-troublesome car. It still looks good enough (I don’t really worry about driving an “it” kind of car). However, it is getting a bit rattly, and my friends have been increasingly giving me a hard time about continuing to drive it past the 200,000 mile mark. I never really cared much until my starter went out a couple of months ago. I wondered, what if this had happened to me while I was in a neighboring state at a client site? Sure, I have AAA, but it would still be a hassle. So, I decided if I saw a car I really liked and that had all the features I wanted, I would splurge and get a new car.
Well…I just happened to find a car I absolutely loved after seeing and driving it. I was at the dealer paying for it yesterday, and the sales person asked for my Social Security Number (SSN).
