I am considering becoming a mystery shopper and one of the questions in the form was to include my SS number.... I am concerned about doing this because of scams and potential identity theft, especially after I filled out a myriad of other personal information on the same page. Is this a standard question within this industry and does anyone else share my concern? Thanks.
If you want to get paid you would need to provide a way for the company to report your taxable income to the IRS. If you don't want to give our your social you could apply for a EIN as many companies will accept this as well.
