I wasn't sure exactly how to title this thread, but here is my issue. I won a cbs-sportsline fantasy baseball league and to claim my winnings I have to fill out this form ... Click Here (12603254501.baseball.sportsline.com)

It seems to ask for a lot of information. Is it fishing for extra information? I do want to claim the money, so if I have to fill it all out then so be it. I'm just curious if anyone knows anything more about these before I go and fill it out.

Thanks

Going off of the domain, it certainly looks legit, if that's what you were worried about. How much did you win? It could just be a legal issue, as far as that goes.

I wouldn't mind filling the form out, except for the SS#. I don't doubt their intentions, just their security. Maybe they would accept a photocopy of your driver's license instead? It wouldn't hurt to look back at the rules of the game and see if they listed any particular information as a requirement.

edit: Never mind. Dr. Dirt explained why they need the SS#. I would do it, but I wouldn't have to like it....

They are going to send in a 1099 (think that's the #) and need your SSN for the IRS. The started asking for that at the state fair here so you have to report any winnings on your taxes. Our daughter won $82 (won the youth bread division) and they wont cut a check unless they have the SSN. So my daughter's win will bump us up a bracket.

By the way congratulations!

Much like the majestic ostrich, I spend a great deal of time with my head in the sand, so I have to ask what might be a dumb question.
