Re #10:
I can prove I have an SSN by showing proof that I have a bank account. I could show an income tax return with my info blacked out. I could show military discharge papers. Since all of those definitively require an SSN, having any of those *is* proof that I have the required SSN. Any number of ways to prove I *have* one without me having to actually show the number.
However, for money market or debit card, you have to provide the number by law. No number, no card and no money market.
Just to point out; it's a matter of semantics.
Example: I can ask you to prove to me that you can fire a handgun. To do so, you could maybe show me a marksmanship badge from the military, your rating score from the police academy, or a newspaper clipping about your conviction for killing somebody with a Glock. That's proof that you can shoot.
Conversely, I could ask you to shoot me.
"Shoot Me" is different than "Prove You Can Shoot".
