I'm signed up with over 150 companies and I've never had that happen so far. Usually I enter my SS# and sign their ICA and then when I get the e-mail that I'm approved as a shopper I can work right away. Are you sure you entered the correct SS#? I'm assuming all they do to validate it is to verify that the SS# kthey were provided is issued in the name you have given them. Does anybody know exactly how they validate the SS#s?
I have had a few that took several days to verify my SS#, but never over a week. I know I had to sign and send in W-9s to a few in order for them to "validate" my SS# - not sure if that is the case in your situation. You might want to try contacting them.
My husband and I just registered as secret shoppers, and the SS# verification came back as cannot match SS# the names ...????
we reentered it thinking we made a typo,, still came back the same??
does any one know what to do next?
Has it been only one company that has had the problem although you signed up with multiple companies? Contact the company and offer to e-mail a scanned copy of your SS card. If multiple companies report a problem with validating your number, contact Social Security, there may be suspicious SS usage.
