I get nervous anytime someone asks for my social, especially over email. Did they have a number, name & title in their email signature? Maybe you could call and discuss with them? Perhaps I am too paranoid...
I agree...not too paraniod at all. Midland wouldn't work with me through email. She gave me her Ph #.
I'd reply by email asking for phone info if it's not in sig block. ...which, if that is the case, would also raise a huge red flag.
Is the entire email thread intact?
Sorry i forgot about this thread. This was the response i got,
The account number listed below is not recognized in our system.
I will need some more identifying information. What is your social
number? And your current telephone number?
I felt somewhat safe about it since the security notice was listed at the bottom,
