ive never heard of anyone asking for a social security number to order, you sure about this? it dosnt sound right to me brutha, i would venture to guess your mistaken, but i would like to know
Was getting ready to order with Clear Sky and saw that they are now asking for my Social Security number, don't feel comfy giving out my ss number, birth date etc....just to place an order with them. I've never had anyone ask for all my personal / private info while trying to order sups / meds.....that's a real deal killer IMO.....do the other forum sponsors ask for all that private info? I need to find a new source...identity theft is huge business today and with what clear sky is asking for can really ruin someone personally and financially.
i just checked and its optional , you can leave it blank, and if u want you can just put last 4 digits of social, but even thats optional, i just checked out as a guest, and left the entire area blank it it went through just fine and took me right to the credit card payment area, so NO you do not need to put a social security number down, Its prolly just a feature that came with their shopping cart application, but it looks like they have it turned off bro so its optional
Ya I went all the way to the end, imputed cc info 3x and came back decline.d for missing or wrong info.....I just private messages them to ask....I used my wife's debt card but put my name down as billing info so maybe it was that as first names are different from billing and shipping....I will update you once I hear back from them, if I hear back from the....they're not the best at returning emails...last one was never responded too....thanks For your input Presser
@eswol checkout muscle-depot they are very secure and dont ask for such info. You can say your name is santa clause and they will mail it to santa clause. Top notch

Imo using a cc to order these goods is risky on its own, its just like giving your ssn lol. W.u. payments is still the safest i feel. Just my 2cents

let us know how it works out. I wont give my ss # for anything. I also give a different date for my birthday.
I just was cancelling a credit check site I had sign up for and It was hard to give them my ss # (which they already had, lol)
I have had my credit card info used two times but cc companys caught early of didnt let purcheses go thru. Only lost a few
bucks but it had to come from internet purchaches (spell??? lol)
Lets clarify once and for all that the SSN is OPTIONAL as we clearly state. It is optional because we do NOT want it - it is our bank that asks for it when you use VISA card. People talk a lot about fraud concerns and identity theft but you can check any forum that we are mentioned in and you will not find a single complaint or concern about payments with us. We have been around for almost 4 years and maintain a 100% clean record.
The reason why our VISA bank asks for the last 4 digits of the SSN is to check that you are real and that your card is not stolen. If only you knew how much fraud attempts we are exposed to by fellow forum members! When you shop then it is absolutely crucial that you enter your real name and details as per the credit card or else the bank wont accept it. The details can deviation a little (eg misspelling) if you have entered the SSN. It is the same for your DOB. The more you enter the higher transaction success rate.
The details are not interesting to us and we can't see them anywhere. They are used by the bank to ensure you are the card holder and to avoid fraud. If someone steals your cc details and try using it at our site then it wont go through unless they know all the real details attached to the card. That is unlikely and hence you are very safe shopping with us.
We have many customers who enters incorrect cc details and it just wont work. Please check our record anywhere and you can see there is nothing to worry about when shopping with us.
If you are concerned about the SSN then leave it blank but please don't complain to us about VISA rejecting the transaction if you also enter incorrect details such as wrong name, address, or DOB. The details are used to verify you are the card holder and nothing else. We have never been involved in fraud, we never SPAM anyone, and we dont have access to most of the details you enter. We are even reluctant to take VISA payment over the phone as many members know. We much prefer you place the order online at our secure site so that the card details are strictly between you and the banks.
You may alternatively use your VISA card or MasterCard to buy a voucher code instead. Then the purchase is not done by our bank nor at our site. All details are at check out.
@eswol: Our email address is email@example.com It is not ".com". We always reply to emails fast and never beyond 12 hours. Either your email was sent to a wrong address or it never went to our inbox. We check our spam filter daily. Please resend and we shall be very happy to respond to your inquiry.
Lastly, the forum members - you - and all our many customers are everything to us and we listen to you. We appreciate this concern has been raised and hope this message can clarify your questions and concerns. But we don't just leave it there. We will remove the SSN entry and see if the bank makes a fuss about it or not. If they complain then it will come up again but you can leave the fields blank so long you enter all other details correctly. Sounds ok to you?
Thanks for chiming in Clear! Surely this will clear it up for some people..
