What is the penalty for using someone else's social security number for employment purposes?
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.

Plain and simple....IDENTIFICATION. Like your fingerprints, there are no two alike.
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.
No. That is illegal, and a federal offence.
Yes, but it is a difficult process and usually not recommended.
Locating a Person's Place of Employment Using an SSN Individuals cannot access such information. Persons or creditors can only obtain the information by use of the disc…overy process after a judgment has been entered against the debtor. There is only one exception to the above, although for personal use would be illegal. Any IRS or State Tax Agent with database access can locate an individual in a small manner of computer moves. This is how they show up at your workplace when you don't know they're coming. For a regular guy, find out where they live and ask a neighbor, or have them followed to work by an Investigator.
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.
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.
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.
Yep, it is called fraud dummy.
You are breaking the Law!
I would like to know if by using your social security number can you find your employment history?
In Business Law
If you are applying for a part time job but do not have a real Social Security number will the employer know if you use your relative's number if they are not using it?
Yes when they put your family members social security number in the machine to check you out their name and information will come up as the person your using and what they use… social security numbers for is to check your background and if they have a felony or whatever you might not get the job and you definitely won't get the job lying so why don't you go to the government center and talk to someone about getting your social security card that way you don't have to lie about it. They going to find out that it's not you so the best thing to do is just go get another social security card Federal law now requires that employers with over 100 employees check an online database to make sure the ID, social security number and date of birth all match. If one item is different, you will no be allowed to continue to work. The use of another person's SSN is a violation of federal law regardless of the status of the user. A U.S. citizen who uses another person's SSN to obtain employment, open a bank account, apply for credit and so forth would be just as guilty of violating SS laws as would an illegal immigrant. Why are you trying to deprive yourself of future benefits? You want your own number against the taxes paid so that you get credit for working all those years.
In Business Law
You would need to immediately inform the police and the social security office. This person can seriously complicate you life. You may end up being liable for debts and ta…xes that are not your fault.
In Criminal Law
Opening someone's mail is considered a felony. You can be fined and put in prison for up to five years, depending on value.
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.
