I've had many items shipped to me from Canada in the past, including my most recent three sets of goalie equipment. Is this a recent requirement? Has anyone else had any experiences like this (successful or otherwise)?
I'm excited at the prospect of getting this stick replaced, but I'm (hopefully understandably) wary about identity theft.
I wouldn't give my SSN to anyone. Whoever was requesting the info is scamming you. Get the person's name and contact info and notify the company and let them know.
