Tenant Screening - TransUnion says possible invalid SSN

1 Reply

Top applicant for a property appears to be a mother-son combo, he is 23 and speaks good English. Both are from Columbia and appear to have come here in the last year or two. Both have SSN, hard-working, blue-collar, very kind people. Glowing report from current landlord, all income verified, no criminality, bad credit but mostly because there isn't enough history.

TransUnion's only real flag (besides the credit) is that SSN may be invalid, and I'm not sure how to take it. Should I/can I do further checks on this? Is it because the SSN may have been issued recently?

@Joe P. It's very possible that the SSN maybe linked to there visa.. if their visa is not valid so does the SSN. This goes with a lot of employment visas..
