AU without SSN?

Hi all,

 

My dad added my as an AU on his Chase Amazon Visa ($7,200 limit), 4 year history.  They didn't ask for my SSN, how can this still report to the CBA?

 

Thanks,

Re: AU without SSN?

I think because your an authorize user, only given a card in your name to be used. Your father is the one responsible for paying the bill and not you.

Re: AU without SSN?

Yes, wife was added by AMEX by virtue of address.  It was strange when they did it, cuz if they can add without SSN.......that's just scary!
