tldr; emailing SSN is bad.
Hey, so payments are going out for referrals, which is super great!
I did over $500, so when my notice came today to fill out the form to get my referral money, I got a notice that I need to fill out a W-9, and email that in.
I get it, GF needs to report to the IRS when they pay out at this level, and I’m more than happy to supply my form.
BUT: Form W-9 requires your social security number, and email is not a safe way to send SSN! This is like, basic email security. Granted, with the Equifax breach we should pretty much assume every American’s SSN is out in the wild, but let’s not add to that chance, okay?
