Kohl's / insisted on having my social security number when I paid for some items with my debit card and a kohl's gift card
When I went to pay for my items with my debit card and a kohl's gift card they Insisted on having my social security number. I have been cautioned many times to never use my social security number for identification because of possible identity theft. I asked if I could use some other form of identification and they said no, it had to be my social security number. The clerk said this was for my own protection. They refused my purchase without it and my daughter said she would give them hers and pay with her debit card which I did not want her to do. When it went through under her card they did not ask for her social security number. I admit I was starting to get angry. I have an excellent credit rating and had had an excellent credit rating all of my life. Why did I get such shabby treatment? I had just gone back to Kohl's recently after a prior problem about a year and a half ago when the clerk kept trying to force me to get a credit card from Kohl's and wouldn't ring up my purchase while he kept arguing that I should get this credit card.. He finally rang it up when I started to get mad. I gave Kohl's a second chance but I will never ever go there again.I remember one time when the computer was compromised at a different store and someone charged items to my credit card. What if they had my debit card information and bank information on that occasion? I could have lost every cent I have.
