Yes, do that. And if it is NOT legit. Call the authorities and Credit Bureau's about the situation asap.

LOL you have nothing to really worry about if you didn't give out the SS#. They won't be able to make any type of False Id's or steal your Identity without that number.

I remember back in the day selling Home Equitys and Lines of Credit over the phone. One thing we had to have for the bank apps to go through was the social security number. Selling apps till that point was easy but when you ask for the SS# conversion went way down lol. I'd say for every ten people I had hooked I could get probally 3 maybe 4 to actually give me there socials.

They can still easily commit fraud without your SSN. It doesn't sound like much, but with just that much information your identity could be stolen.

Report it immediately, don't feel embarrassed. It's good that your mom didn't give out her SSN, b/c there is a lot less they can do now. However it is possible to apply for and get approven for a credit card (in your name) without a SSN.

I don't know if your speaking for Canada or not.

In the States it is impossible to get credit without a social security number on the application.

People that have the simplest info on you can get your SS# relatively easy. I used to work in the fraud dep. for BOA. You'd be surprised how much this happens to people, even the ones that are cautious and don't give out any info.
