I was asked my social security number on an application. I didn't feel safe giving such personal information, specially on the initial application. However, I don't know if I did the right thing. When should we provide the social security number and date of birth when filling out online applications for employment? Is there a place we can check the employer prior to doing so?

That's why I don't just accept face-to-face interviews.

This happened to me just 2 months ago the scammers sent me a check in the mail to get the supplies I needed for working at home, the check looked real but obviously it wasn’t when I put the check in my bank account.
