I once actually paid for a "background check" on myself through the internet 
(I think it was around $35). It was pretty scary all of the info they came up 
with. Nothing bad, but just none of anyone's business, IMHO. They had old 
addresses and phone numbers for me that I had forgotten, even a cell phone 
number from around 1982.

I didn't have to give an SSN for this purpose.
