Alternate Names

Submitted by:
Jj, I have a question on using alternate names for credit cards. I have done it in the past with no problem, but now they are asking for the last four of the SSN. I thought about giving a fake number, last four, from the list in your book since the card will be linked to mine and the rep at the bank stated they don't verify it. But think that perhaps it may be a bit much to go down this road. What do you think?

JJ Luna Responds:

How about just adding a family memeber to your card? Perhaps in your wife's maiden name, or in your son'e middle and last name.
