GetHuman-jimccli's review of Best Buy customer service
GetHuman: So how would you sum up your experience for GetHuman's Best Buy customer community? We'll censor any IDs, numbers, or codes and any inappropriate words here out of respect to the millions of other customers using this resource.
GetHuman-jimccli: Why did your clerk ask for full soc. Sec. * when switching from one carrier to another.
GetHuman: Can you tell the rest of us a bit more from what happened on 11/28/17?
GetHuman-jimccli: Son switched from our AT&T acct. to his wife's Sprint acct. The clerk at your store insisted they needed full soc. sec. * of the AT&T acct holder to make the switch. We reluctantly and foolishly provided it. Neither AT&T nor Sprint can understand why they would be asking. They occurred at the Best Buy at Worley and Stadium in Columbia MO. Clerk was Tatiana.
