  •  I did the same (0+ / 0-)

    just to put this to the test.  never redirected and not asked silly questions from years ago.  pretty straight forward, actually.

    •  Well, then you were lucky. Two of my questions (1+ / 0-)

      reasonable regarding mortgage and car loans.

      But asking an address from twenty years ago, and what your car tag reads that hasn't been renewed in 3 years this April (but luckily not sold, and still available to me to look at) is rather ridiculous, in my opinion.

      But clearly, the sensible thing would have been to at least ask about a "current car tag."

      You were probably lucky.  Even the Social Security agent I spoke to earlier today admitted that he almost couldn't complete the registration due to the silly questions he was asked.

      I asked him if he got a "car tag" question.  He didn't, but he was asked an ancient address, older than mine by a number of years.  

      He acknowledged that they are having a problem with this security system throwing people out.  (I talked to him BEFORE I registered, and almost didn't even try, for fear that I would be locked out.)
