More like "free money."
Nothing in this world is free ya know. If there are people out there who would give you money for something through emails, then sorry I would rather give up that opportunity than pay the price when it isn't real deal.
It's general rule not to give out your personal information (even to your own friends). 80% of the time if you fill out the form for doctor or bank or whatever, you don't even have to give out your SS number. You can just refuse to fill out that info. Most of the time they understand.
Only time giving out personal information make sense is if you are in doctor, school, bank, or lawyer office or when you make a big purchase such as cellphone, house, or car. Then usually you have no choice but to give out some info since they got to do background check on you. Never through internet.
