Comments:Eliminating SSN from private records is an excellent idea since it is widely abused throughout the commercial enterprise. SSNs are currently used for criminal activities and not for the purpose for which Congress enacted it - for social security, retirement, and tax identification purposes. Its elimination from the commercial practice will undoubtedly reduce much of the criminal and fraudulant activities. Thank you.
