Stop allowing SSNs to be used as Identification

Social Security Numbers are not for identification purposes. However, utilities, banks, and department stores use it for identification as a matter of policy. One disgruntled employee can snatch thousands of numbers. We should find companies that choose to ignore this rule and use the funds to offset ID Theft programs at FTC.

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
