I only found out by accident because I went to the California Franchise Tax Board to pull copies of my W-2s
I gave the age of my SS number and she asked me if I was and gave me some Hispanic name of so-and-so Metal Works in Santa Ana I said no
Then she said oh you must be and gave me my correct name
So i aslrd...you have two people reporting into that social security number?
she says oh yes I'm not supposed to tell you that.
I said you have the information the database why don't you do something about it?!
She said I can't tell you that but we're not allowed to do anything about it
I asked her how do I clear it and she said what i had to go to Social Security
So I go to Social Security and tell them I have someone reporting under my social security number and I want to clear it up and they told me flat-out we will not confirm or deny that and we won't give you the information if someone else is using it.. so you can't clear it up
