Re: What is the risk of this?

They want your social security number - what could possibly go wrong with that?

I now suspect this might be a troll. Apologies if I'm accusing you unjustly - but really, do you have to ask about using your social security number as identification? (Unless, perhaps, this is some financial web site where they have that data anyway; but you're not giving a lot of detail, which helps me suspect trolling).

The OP could post the site address to prove otherwise but I'm doubting the site exists.

It is at »ws1.aholdusa.com/jgpromos/homeac···dex.html

I can not for security reasons tell you the answers to the security questions OR give to you my account info so that you can verify, once logged in you can not change the password.

My apologies for doubting you.
As dave See Profile mentioned earlier if the challenge question answers consist of data the site already has then it's not the huge issue it would normally be seen as.

However, exchanging a password for only the challenge question answers is not too sharp, actually it's piss poor security, IMO.
