A recruiter was very direct in asking me for the Last four of my SSN for a job at JPMC. I said no, use the last four of my phone number because I never heard of a job application where someone does this. Another recruiter from the same company with a JPMC offers another position with the company. He asked if I would be able to provide my full ssn and DOB at the time of offer, I said of course it makes sense at the time of the offer.
The lead recruiter then contacts me, does an "equation" for the salary and then states his best offer. What should I do? Everyone says go with your gut, and i would like a position at JPMC but wouldn't want an identity theft situation either. Is this normal?
Will i get my identity stolen with my legal name and ssn?
He said he will eventually need me to email or text my ssn to him when I have to accept the job offer.
