The Federal Government requires us to collect certain tax-related information from all individuals that we conduct business with during each calendar year. We must also issue a 1099 Form to each individual to whom we pay more than $600 during that year. Your SSN must be entered in your Sassie profile before you are able to accept any future shops.
We apologize for any inconvenience. Although your SSN was collected previously, ICCDS is upgrading our security measures. This upgrade has cleared out all SS numbers from our system. Please login to our Sassie site (http://www.sassieshop.com/2iccds/shoppers/LoginShopper.norm.php) today to enter your SSN to ensure you do not miss out on any shopping opportunities. This upgrade will take place on June 26. We ask that you please enter your number. If your number is not entered you can no longer shop for us.
i got it and deleted it. I'll re-enter the info whenever
the next time I do a shop. Sounds like there is more
to the story and they are trying to hide something.
Why would just their sassie system wipe out
everyone's numbers. Makes no sense.

There are no stupid questions, but there are a lot of inquisitive idiots

I logged onto my site and once I went to the Job Board I got the profile page and it would not let me go further saying I had two errors. Looked totally like every other Sassie site when they need you to update and once I did it then let me go into the job board.
I also got the you have successfully updated your profile email that comes right after you make changes on a Sassie site profile.
I will say though as soon as I got it I figured people would think it was a scam.
ICCDS installed a new module for SSN's and in order to verify with the IRS all numbers had to be wiped out and reentered. Once you enter your numbers they are encrypted which is why the numbers could not simply be transferred over. Please contact one of our schedulers if you have any other questions or concerns!

I received the same, but went to the site manually to update. I try to remember to never click active links in my email, since the scammers are getting pretty good at faking sites. Since they already had the information from my original application, I did not feel threatened by re-entering it once I had gone through the site's front door
It is legit. However, what they record as income for the MS does not take into account mandatory purchases, reimbursements or travel fees, such as gas. They just flat out report what you were paid, not differentiating the payments and the reimbursements.
Don't you keep track of your expenses? It is not up to each individual mystery shopping company to deduct your expenses from your income since they would have no idea what expenses you incurred. As a small business owner you track income, reimbursements, mileage and any expenses business-related expenses. It is on your tax forms that you take all allowable deductions to offset your income.
