I have a house that I am renting and the person Im renting it to gets assistance. i need to give them a copy of my SSN by the 21st or she will not be able to rent the house or any other, I havnt had a SS card in years, we just never need them as we all know the number.It doesnt have to be a real one it just has to look like one as I am just going to send a copy over fax. There are places online but they all take bitcoing only. I hate coming here for stuff that isnt pinball related but I have no one else to ask. If anyone can help it would be appreciated

Man that sounds like a scam to me.

Say what? You need to give the person you are renting your Social Security.. Sounds off.. Like Alarms blaring off.

Here are the Landlord forms. Be ultra careful.

No, I need to send it to the office that is giving her rental assistance. I dont have a SS card

No way I wouldn’t

You can go to the social security office and get them same day now, I just did last week. But something does sound fishy. I could see the government wanting it but not the renter.

Regular or counterfeit? I know a guy, but he's currently in county lockup. (Phony Covid cards also available.)

I am not giving it to the renter, I am giving it to the government office.

Not all SS offices do give cards the same day, there’s probably one in Houston though. You’ll need birth certificate, utility bill and photo ID. Call ahead to make sure.

zr11990 , you can do it online via the Social Security Administration. https://www.ssa.gov/myaccount/replacement-card.html

Makes no sense to give them a fake one. If they want the card, they will more than likely run the number.

No.

Not sure how long it takes, but can you apply for a EIN and use that. If you are renting a house, wouldn't it be good to have one anyway?

#15 2 years ago

I just had to get a new one. You have to go online for the SSO and make an appointment. Most offices don’t allow walk ins. You’ll need your birth certificate and another proof of identity. My office doesn’t hand you copy’s but I got it in the mail in two days. The whole process was very painless.

I've never heard of such a thing where the landlord has to give someone their SS number because of someone else's financial situation. Who is actually requesting it? How were you notified about this?

Did the renter say this? Maybe they misunderstood? Maybe they don't have a SS number and are trying to use yours?

Did you get a phone call or email? If so, it could be a scam of some sort to obtain personal information. As far as I'm aware, any official requests would be through snail mail.

The way you explained the situation sounds very strange.

I think he wants a template of what the card looks like, then photoshop his number (which he knows) into the card, then fax it. The faxing will, in theory, obscure the photoshop job.

Does sound phishy... there's no reason the gov't agency couldn't just have you provide your SSN directly to them and they verify it.

Maybe I am not explaining it right. The woman receives assistance and for her to get it to rent my house I have to be in the system. For me to be in the system they want a copy of my SSN card. I am not giving it to her, we are sending it to the person that manages her file or info.

And Metallic I agree. I have put the damn number on so many papers it isnt funny but they want a copy of the card. I applied online so we will see what happens. If I could get a fake copy of one that would work because all we are doing is faxing a copy of the darn card.

Why the rush? The way the market is you should have 15 people ready to rent your house today.

Scam

#21 2 years ago

I know with section 8, the agency needs that info to pay you. I would verify the number before faxing anything.

Last Year's Federal tax return or W-2 form always works.

I did this. How long did it take.

Let me get this straight - you are planning to fax to a government agency a fake social security card?

LOL real number just a card printed online. The quality of a fax is so bad they wouldnt notice.

#26 2 years ago

Yeah I'd love to hear the prosecution over this.. it's his SSN, so there's no identity fraud, and no intent to commit fraud. Is it actually illegal to fax a simulation of a valid SS card? I don't think any prosecutor would pursue this even if he did get caught.

#27 2 years ago

I assume your doing section 8 through metro housing HUD. They need your info because they’ll report the income to the IRS and send you a 1099.

If that is the case, I wouldn’t send a fake document to a federal agency.

Just submit a W-9 instead.

Dunno. Did they give you a confirmation or where you can print out a temporary card? I would think that would suffice.

Gave them that already

My good friend has worked at SSA for most of his life. In the card and phone support sector.

You would be horrified to hear how backed up and slow they are operating at the moment. Their card offices aren’t even open and running on minimal staff at best on site.

You won’t be getting anything quickly.

This whole thing screams scam. If a renter is receiving assistance I would imagine all they would need is a copy of the rental agreement and an ID in their name to verify residence…..something is not adding up. How long has this person been renting from you? If it’s been over a year or two why is this just coming up now?

Also with the current housing market WHY are you not selling…..there is a shortage of houses and you could get TOP dollar NOW instead of making a little over time in rent. Cash out now unless you are getting double your normal rent IMO.
