Social Security Number (SSN) Fraud

The U.S. Government has announced that hackers have compromised the Social Security Number (SSN). This means that the SSN is now a potential target for identity theft. A large number of people are unaware that the SSN has been hacked. This could have devastating consequences for your finances.

The U.S. Government says that “criminals could use the data to steal identities, commit fraud and run up bills under someone else’s name.”

While this is bad, it’s not as bad as it sounds. It’s not as if the hackers can steal your financial information. They can’t access your bank account.

If they try to use your SSN to commit fraud, they’ll fail because of something called “data masking.”

Data masking is a technique that is used to prevent identity theft by creating a virtual “wall” between the real person and the virtual person.

The U.S. Government says that “the SSN is protected by ‘masking’ information that makes it difficult to be used in identity theft.”

How to report SSN fraud

If you’ve ever had an SSN stolen, you may have already had your number reported. If you haven’t, here’s what you should do.

Call the SSA’s toll-free hotline at 800-772-1213, and request a new SSN. The phone agent will ask you to provide your name and other information. They will print out an SSN card and send it to you.

Be sure to keep your new card handy. It’s the only form of ID that can be used to access your financial accounts.

How to protect yourself from SSN fraud

You’ve probably heard of data breaches and identity theft before. But did you know the Social Security Number (SSN) is the most common target?

The Social Security Number (SSN) is the number assigned to each American citizen, which serves as proof of citizenship, tax identification, and an identifier of a person’s eligibility for certain government services.

According to the Social Security Administration, the Social Security Number (SSN) is “a unique identifier used by the United States Government to identify people who are eligible for benefits under the Social Security program.”

It’s also an integral part of the American identity. It’s the primary form of identification used in many financial transactions.

So, how can you protect your Social Security Number (SSN)?

First, you should never share your SSN with anyone, whether they’re a friend, family member, or random person on the street.

Second, if you get a text or email requesting your SSN, you should never give it out.

Third, you should use strong passwords and change them frequently.

Fourth, you should always check your credit reports. Your credit report will show any suspicious activity or changes, and you can fix it at no cost.

Fifth, you should file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) if you suspect your Social Security Number (SSN) has been stolen.
