Yes. A scammer coupld be involved. But many, if not most job sites ask for this info in order to do a background check. It's common to not only check for criminal background, but to do a credit check. People with bad credit will often be rejected out-of-hand for a job.

Job websites, required to disclose age, required to disclose SS #

AARP did an article about age discrimination but it reminded me that seeking jobs online not only required me to give my age but also my social security number. Couldn't a scammer put a non-existent job online just to get social security numbers? I almost hate to even put this idea out there.
