I've decided that I'm just not giving them that information. No job is worth it to me to have my credit destroyed, because almost all of them check your credit these days (though what the hell that has to do with your job is beyond me) so if that's destroyed getting a job becomes very difficult (even more difficult than it already is, which is hard enough already).
The last thing I need in life right now is that, and having vultures harassing me non-stop to pay "my" bills from ID theft, and once my credit is destroyed I know I have a snowball's chance in hell of getting it fixed, it will be screwed up for at least 7 years and my current creditors will drop me but that will be the LEAST of my problems when I'm homeless and jobless.
It's one thing when bad luck and your poor choices cause that - it's another thing altogether when you get your ID stolen and did basically nothing wrong. But in our system, it's pretty much the same thing regardless.
So to all those guys who demand that, my answer is going to simply be "NO". Better to lose a maybe interview than the alternative.
