Sick and tired of it

Elena is tired of her SSN being used and abused. For example, she joined a company which sells products and gives bonuses to those who find others who are also willing to sell those products. The company uses SSNs as employee ID numbers. She is also angry at her bank, Great Western, which uses the last four digits of customers' SSNs as the password to get into its phone banking system. She'd like this profligate use of SSNs to be outlawed. 07-459-95

Stan has a similar complaint. He is a sales agent for a long distance company and makes sales calls from his home. The company uses SSNs as the company ID number. It's on their business cards. When the employees take a new order, their SSN appears on the paperwork which the customer receives. 10-943-94
