Background check company (BackTrack) emailed SSN of my ex team member?
Wow just wow... I'm naming this company because it's a huge breach in privacy and I hope other background check companies don't do this.
I got a call to verify background of one of my ex team members. Was busy so I asked them to email over to my work email and would take care of it.
Email came and included the last 4 digits of his SSN. Seriously wtf? Why was that included in the email?
I'm appalled and yes while it's not me who is being background checked, this is simply unacceptable. I also hope other background check companies are not doing this sort of nonsense. HR people if you're reading this, please don't contract with this type of companies. Thanks.
