Is it safe to give my social secrity number to the greendot prepaid credit card people?

I am a minor, so it asked for my social security number, and my parents. When I called, i was outsourced to someone with a very thick middle eastern/indian/i dont know accent (not trying to sound racist) but is it safe to give my social security number to a real person in a different country?

Personally, as far as I am concerned, the cc people don’t need to know my ssn. check with other cc companies and see if they ask you for the same things before you submit..

Probably not safe. Have you researched the company thoroughly?

Check it up on the internet by entering the name in a Google search bar, or check

When in doubt, do not give out any SSN information.
