Re: About providing Social Security # to dealer? (av_audi)
The request for a SSN is only required by me, along with a Signed Credit
Application, if I am asked to accept a personal check for $25-$35K.
If a customer is bringing a Cashier's/Certified/Brokerage check then it is
All of this said...Identity theft originating in an Automobile Dealership via the
use of a SSN is really a stretch. Instead, look for the Checker at a store that
asks to see your Driver's License when you cash a personal check, or when
you use a credit card & they ask for a second ID, like your DL.
There is no Governmental Agency that requires a SSN. We are required to
maintain copies of the driver's License(with a picture) & a Proof of Insurance card.
And Cup1...that may be true, but if you want a loan you will provide alot
more than your SSN...
