Comments:I have been a Licensed Private Investigator for 35 years. The use and ability to obtain SSN's is paramount in obtaining information regarding the whereabouts of individuals. Just yesterday I located a deadbeat husband who owes my client thousands of dollars in back child support,. The county services were unable to find this individual, and I would not have been able to locate him had it not been for his SSN. Passing laws to prohibit use by licensed PI's will destroy our ability to bring people to justice.
