Are you ready for a Monday pop quiz?
Check the boxes of business data that are “public information”:
◻ Phone number
◻ Social Security Number
Ready for the answers?
Addresses are public, but phone numbers are considered private under state law.
And if you give out social security numbers to strangers, you should know the Brooklyn Bridge is *not* for sale and the Nigerian prince who emailed you is *not* going to share his inheritance.
Now, ready for some good news?
You don’t have to remember what is public information. Just go get the public file!
No fooling! We have a new public disclosure file for you with all the businesses registered in your city. In your SFT folder, there is a file called “CityPublic.csv” (for example, “BhamPublic.csv” for Bellingham).
