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.

Good luck and please do the right thing. C.H.
