Hi, I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. No, they're not. It's actually a federal crime to put a number other than your Social Security Number on a credit application. Also, there's no such thing as a CPN or credit protection number. It only exists in the minds of those who are selling them - and it's a scam. They're setting you up to be charged with a crime. Do not do business with anyone encouraging you to use CPN instead of your SSN to apply for credit. If someone is trying to sell you a CPN, report them to the police.Here is more information from the Federal Trade Commission. If you have any questions or concerns about my response, please reply WITHOUT RATING. It's important that you are 100% satisfied with my courtesy and professionalism. Otherwise, please rate my service positively so I am paid for the time I spend answering questions. If you are on a mobile device, you may need to scroll to the right. There is no charge for follow-up questions. Thank you.
