Best Buy Complaint - Credit Application
HOUSTON, TEXAS -- Please be aware that once you complete a credit application at Best Buy, even if you are turned down for credit the store will not return your application, which contains your social security number. If Best Buy runs your credit ap and rejects it then why would Best Buy refuse to return your social security number? Do you know what use they'll put it to? Have you ever been victimized by identity theft? Think about it.
Nothing on Best Buy's credit ap warns or otherwise alerts you that your social security number will not be returned to you.
Bad policy. Stop shopping there until it is corrected.
