    dont do that – why would they need your social security number?!
    Its likely a phishing attack, if you gave them your full name, dob and address, and soc you just gave them your identity

    Well gaming sites should have some terms and stuff, read over those carefully. If it says they aren’t responsible for anything or anything along those lines, I wouldn’t go for it. Identity theft is a growing problem today and can be avoided by just going to a casino instead of gaming websites. They can be dangerous and life changing, so use at own risk.

    Happy Gaming!

    So you play a online game for 10 minutes and end up with the highest score ever and win $1,000.00 just provide your name, address, and SSN.

    Just which part of that DOES NOT appear to be a scam to you?

    DO NOT give out you SSN# to anyone.
