The fine is up to 15 years in prison, and up to 250,000 dollars fine. You may think it is simple and not really such a bad thing to do, coming to America and using a random SS number to get a job somewhere, but if you are caught, it is seen as identity theft, fraud, and however else the judge will see it. It is best to get it done legally, a work visa, a student visa person can ask their school for a temporary work permit, or fall in love and get married and then get your green card and permit to work. DON'T take the risk of becoming a hardened criminal, because all that hard earned money you make at your new job might just be taken away from you and you will still end up oweing more for the rest of your life...or go rent free..in jail. Good luck and please do the right thing. C.H.

No - that's called FRAUD - which is illegal !
Yep, it is called fraud dummy.
No. That is illegal, and a federal offence.
Can an individual taxpayer identification number be used in place of a Social Security number for employment?
One and the same thing
I think they can cross reference you ssn and name but I am not sure.
You are breaking the Law!
Yes. You can be arrested, tried, convicted and sent to prison. Fraudulent use of someone else's Social Security number is a federal criminal offense.
my sister-in-law cashed her ex-husbands social security check, forging his signature, while the ex was in jail. What are her penalties now that her action has been found?
Yes, Identity Theft includes taking or using someone's Social Security Number. Identify Theft that includes theft of services or goods is illegal. Both Identity Theft an…d Theft of services or goods are criminal acts for which a person can be fined, face jail time, and be required to pay restitution.
Mess things up
A possible prison sentence for I.D. Fraud
Your Social Security number is yours to use for a lifetime. If you find out that someone else has used it notify the Social Security Office immediately. No one can use their …Social Security number to connect a telephone for another person. It is their own personal number for their use only for their lifetime.
You do not. Use of the Social Security number is the exclusive venue of the Social Security Administration as established by the Social Security Act.
It keeps track of money you have contributed to Social Security (which, for most people, means your employer withheld and submitted on your behalf). When you file to recei…ve SS benefits at 65 or older, the amount you receive will depend on the amount you have put in.
Absolutely not. If you do not have a social security number, then you have to mention such in the job application. Use of another person's social security is fraud, and can be… punishable by legal action.
In Barack Obama
He doesn't; he has his own, which we know because during his presidential campaigns, he has released public documents indicating what it is, and this was presumably verifi…ed by the SSA, IRS and other relevant agencies prior to his election. However, there are a bunch of conspiracy theories based on half truths or, more often, outright lies. One says that he is using the Social Security Number (SSN) of a dead man who was born in France and died in Hawaii. This one is just an outright lie. The Frenchman's SSN is totally different from Obama's; not only that, but the Frenchman died when Obama was about 20 years old- presumably he would've noticed if his SSN was stolen during that time. Another says that his number belongs to someone born in Connecticut. This one is partly rooted in truth, but is still probably false. Until a few years ago, the first three digits of your SSN were based on the mailing address for where you registered your number- it wasn't necessarily where you were born, or where you lived, but where you had your SSN card mailed. This was usually going to be the same as where you were born though. Since about 2011, that scheme has ended, and new SSN's are totally random. President Obama's SSN indicates an address in Connecticut. That doesn't really make sense since he was born in Hawaii and there's no known connection between his family and Connecticut (his mother was from Kansas, and his father was from Kenya). Obama registered with Social Security when he was 16, which was quite normal until around the mid 1970's, when they started registering people right after birth. When he registered, Obama lived in Honolulu, and had the zip code 96814. There is a city in Connecticut with the zip code 06814. You can look down at your computer keyboard and see that 9 and 0 are right next to each other, and on the typewriters used back then, this was the same. In all likelihood, it was a simple clerical error. The lesson here is don't always believe what your friends post on Facebook.
