I was about to call for complaint and tell them how unsatisfied customer I am., I spent 30minutes of long distance call to waste my money and time!

    1. No, do not invent your TIN numbers. You'll be having a problem if you do that. I suggest you go and get one. You can even have an ID in just a day. And, most of the facilities/agencies are asking for this TIN.
