Re: Why do they want my social security number?

said by damonlab:

I tried to a signup and they said I had to either provide them my social security number, pay a deposit, or visit a service center. I do not like any of those options.

When one is opening a monthly account for a service from a company, it is not unreasonable to expect that said company either wants to establish a customer's ability/willingness to pay historically, or in lieu of that, ask for a substantial enough deposit to lessen their potential loss if the customer does not pay.

What other options could they offer that would satisfy this criteria?
