Golly Mom ... I sure feel safe nowSubmitted by Sovereign Forever on Mon, 11/12/2012 - 15:47
So I'm online looking into a new laptop for family use.
I was almost 3/4 of the way there and for some reason i thought about not giving my SSN
I was prompted to provide the information in this manner
Why Dell Asks for SSN
It's wise to be cautious about sharing your social security number or any other personal information. Dell Financial Services takes the privacy and security of our customers' information very seriously and we don't ask for information unless we absolutely need it to offer you financing in the quickest and most efficient manner.
We require you to furnish your social security number because it's required by law. Under the USA Patriot Act of 2001, we're required to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account.
... Ahh safety and security for the low low price of a little liberty ( What a deal !!! )
