Give them your Social Security number?
Um, it’s not your number. You didn’t create it.
When you’re born, the State creates a number and assigns it to an all caps NAME (a corporation). The all-caps name JOHN DOE is not yours either. You didn’t create it.
Look at the bills you get in the mail. They bill JOHN DOE, their creation.
Look at court summonses. They summons JOHN DOE into court. Their creation.
And when the judge asks “Are you JOHN DOE?”
“Yes your honor!”
You just accepted full liability for their creation.
