I just went thru the sign up for new customer promos on the Directv website. When I hit the checkout button it asked me for my Social Security number for a "Credit Check". I have a real problem giving out my SSN, especially on the internet. There is a box provided for "Continue without Credit Check". What happens if I use that box? I do not have a problem with a credit check or providing a credit card for payment. I do have a problem with giving out my SSN.
