    Hi BHW,


    I have been reading threads on this forum for a while, but just made an account After several days of spreading my links and such from Commission Junction (CJ), I got $225 in my account. But I can't withdraw it without entering my Social Security number (SSN). I can't enter my SSN, as I am underage and my parents won't allow me to. My parents are overly skeptical about online stuff, so they wouldn't enter their SSN if I change the account name to one of theirs. So am I just screwed because I can't get my money? If anyone has any suggestions or a fix to this problem, please feel free to comment. Thanks in advance!

    Well, from what I see, you've got 3 choices:

    1) Get your parents to allow you to put one of their SSNs in because I don't think CB would issue payment to you with an underage SSN.

    2) Get a trusted friend that's over 18 and give them the account and split the amount that he/she pulls out for you. NOTE: this obviously is very risky so make sure you know who you're dealing with if you try this.

    3) How close are you to 18?

    Thanks for your prompt response.

    1. My dad is an atttorney and is all skeptical about anything that is kinda easy, because he believes that nothing in life is free. He definitly wouldn't put his SSN in. Thanks for the suggestion though.

    2. Good idea. I am far below 18 so I don't have any older friends, but I'll see.

    3. I am far from 18. I'm 13.

    Thanks again for your prompt response.

    Damn, if you dad is an attorney, have him read the TOS and look at some of the companies that use CJ to sell their stuff, maybe he will come around.

    No offense, but that's pretty retarded that he thinks that you're just getting $225 for free? Does he not know you worked for it? Or does he think because you're 13 you're not able to make your own $$$?

    I hear what your saying. It's just that he's seen people get scammed, and he is skeptical anyways. So he wouldn't let me do it, and he def wouldn't use his own. I understand where your coming from though.

    Yo - F#$%k this dude.

    It's a scam. He's trying to get your social security number. How can I tell? Easy.

    1. What 13 year old can "spread a few links around" and make $225 with CJ.
    2. What 13 year old uses phucken' parenthesis when they type in a forum: Commission Junction (CJ), Social Security Number (SSN)
    3. Thanks your prompt response??? Yeah right! Try 45 years old.

    Take your 2 posts and go home. This is a place for real internet marketers. Take your scams to Warrior World.
    People here work way to hard to be scammed out of their money.

    This thread is getting complicated best we move away from the legal issues! The OP dude has enough lawyers at home, he is a budding entrepreneur all he wants is his money!

    I have a feeling that someone from BHW will come to the rescue and help as suggested by OldSalt Point 2)

    How could he get someone's SNN? And who in the heck would give it to him? I'm a newbie too, but I'm just trying to understand why people are so hostile on these threads.

    My comments on your post that seems very good to me, maybe the hostility issue is because of late on BHW too many scammers have been crawling out from under rocks!

    Hey rachelmarieluv,

    For the reason you asked that question is why some people are so hostile

    You are a newbie and very eager to learn and people will take advantage of that. I get hostile when people come here and try to disrupt what BHW is all about.

    HOW HE CAN GET A SSN
    Someone eager to earn a few bucks says, "Hey, you can use my SSN to release your money for 10.00, or $20, or even half". Then the Op says, great. Now this person has a working Social Security Number and maybe even a name to use for whatever he wants. He can apply for credit, or whatever.

    It doesn't seem like a scam because he never makes the suggestin. He just puts out all the information so someone else can come up with the brilliant idea and WHAM!

    Better to be over cautious then someone getting scammed. Sorry if I come off hostile but I've seen it way too many times.

    -Capp

    I dont want your SSN! Wow. You just contaminated this thread, and now anyone with advice won't want to contribute. Afterall, using someone else's SSN is A FEDERAL OFFENSE! I am not so brash as to do that. So please refrain from commenting anymore harmful thoughts.

    I am sorry you aren't as intelligent as I am. But I attend a very elite school that takes pride in its curriculum and its people. I just take your weak attempt at a accusation as a compliment. Thanks!

    I think I understand. I guess I just haven't been around long enough to witness the scammers that post here. I can see how it puts people in defensive mode, especially if it's happened to them.

    Call it a savings account until you turn 18. You dont get any interest on a savings account anyway...

    Enter your own SS# and continue. They don't know how old you are and the SS# won't give them access to that info.
