personally, I think certain info is okay. citizenship, employer, income..that's okay

it's not a big deal in grand scheme of things.

I've got nothing to hide, so I'll give them that info. It was just strange to me that they would request the information for a checking account, and I was afraid it might have been a scam.

I think not having anything to hide has nothing to do with it. I don't have any drugs in my home, but just because I have nothing to hide doesn't mean I want the Feds bashing down my door, ransacking the place, and beating me in the hopes of extracting a confession to prove the point.

Fascists always tell you when they violate you "if you have nothing to hide you have nothing to fear", as if that justifies violating you in the first place.

I'm one of these weirdo problem people who actually believes in "innocent until proven guilty" and you have to prove me guilty. I know that makes me a terrorist in this country these days for believing in such radical socialist nonsense, but I do. And I don't much care if our Nazi leadership doesn't like that point of view, I won't apologize for it.

Don't lay money on that wager. You'd THINK if you have a BIV security clearance, people would trust you more (I mean, they talked, in person, to my college landlord and basically every other person I've ever known), but they don't. And for good reason. Despite how scared I was that I could lose my clearance and therefore my job if I paid a bill even a day late or got so much as a parking ticket based on the spiel I was given when hired, I know of coworkers who have everything from serious credit problems to minor misdemeanors (either NOT traffic-related or SERIOUSLY traffic-related like reckless operation or DUI) and who retain their clearances and jobs. I understand that it would be hard to CONSTANTLY filter for all these issues, but I have coworkers who have never seen the north side of a 650 credit score and still pass their 5-years with flying colors and no extra questions. (for non-feds, don't worry too much, we don't handle personal information, so none of these people I've mentioned are handling your personal information...in our line, it's mostly state secrets, and even then minor ones...97% or more of what I do is public information and can be found on the Google).
