Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX your question. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be happy to help you.
SPBGMA will actually need your social security number if they give you more than $600.
So, it's a legitimate request.
The danger of giving them your number is XXXXX someone will get your number and steal your identity - although the risk for that is minimal, in my opinion - but it is a possibility
I think they will still need your social security number for that, because their cash prize is over $600
But, if you wanted you could contact them and tell them you will give your social security number if you win.
They may not release any money to you until you give that information
Is there anything else that I can assist you with today?
Okay, then you will have to give it unfortunately. But, I would say the risk is low. Your personal information is in so many more places that are more vulnerable
