You and I are living in a country of Criminals & Crooks, the United States of America.
Beware Seniors of companies that want you to give them your Social Security number & your date of birth.
If you give them that information, they can steal your identity as easily as counting to 1, 2, 3.
Remember the famous and wise person who once said: "You can never be paranoid enough."
DO NOT TRUST PEOPLE THAT YOU DO NOT KNOW.
I have learned from hard experiences, that in the USA you should trust NO ONE.
