I recently have been receiving emails for consulting work. This is a good thing because I’m back on the market. However; some of the emails I have been receiving are asking for PII. This information can be used for identity theft.
Here’s an example: Asking for my date of birth and the last four digits of my Social Security Number. There is no good reason for any head hunter to be asking for that information. If you receive a query for a job asking for this information, hit the delete button.
