Robert Scott, of The Investigator’s Little Black Book, has tossed his hat into the ring of SSN validators, launching SSNValidator, still in beta mode. Like the several other online validator services, Scott offers a few searches for free, then you gotta pay. It used to be standard to get a confirmation on the validity and date of issuance of a SSN when running the number through an address header, but now it’s broken out as a separate fee service. More nickel and diming. I can’t get real excited about receiving less for more money.
