Re: Criminals can now file and receive your social security - take this step to stop them
Haha I wonder if MSN sourced their article through MyFico forums :-)
Here’s something else to keep in mind. If you’ve placed a freeze or fraud alert on your credit file, you will not be able to open the account until you unlock the file. Social Security uses information in your file to verify your identity. You can open an account in person by going to a local Social Security office.
