Just weird

So, this morning I was in my apartment when the phone rings. My parents and I have been vaguely trying to connect with each other so I picked it up right away. This is the conversation that ensued:

Me: Hello?
Unknown male: Hello?
Me: Yes, hi?
UM: Are you there?
Me: Yes?
UM: What's your Social Security Number
Me: I'm sorry, I don't give that out over the phone. *hangs up*

o_0 I mean, what? Seriously! Is this some sort of new scam? Call people up and ask for their SSN and see how many of them automatically give it out? BIZARRE.

WOW. that is crazy.

did you know here in Canada we call this number the Social Insurance Number, ie. SIN number.

Yes, very crazy!

I did not know that. Is there a particular reason that you're aware of?

MaureenE said...

OH. I got it! Lol! Sometimes I'm very slow in the uptake.

Maybe it's the new pickup line - I'll steal your identiy, and take you out to eat with your own money?

That's so bizarre.
