  • TSD Logistics Fuel Saver Program

    Have any of you enrolled in TSD’s fuel saver program? If so, how did assure yourself (ves) that your identity wouldn’t be unnecessarily exposed to identity theft since the application asks for your Social Security number?

    Briefly, this small trucking company is willing to issue you an EFS card to use at truck refueling stations, such as Loves, TA, etc. allowing the user the same discounts they’ve negotiated with companies. In some cases up to 49 cents a gallon. They keep 5% of the fuel discount as their fee.

    The business model is the more fuel they purchase the bigger discounts they can negotiate.

    Sounds to good to be true, but my real concern is identity theft? I’m looking to see if anyone has experience with this program and if identity thief is an issue.

    Is this the application form? If so, not seeing where they need SSN. I see they do need bank info and that makes sense.
    If you are on a site that wants SSN, I wonder if it's legit? Don't ever give SSN out.

      Hamster, you’re right the application doesn’t ask for it but they said they ask for it to file a claim if bank funds are insufficient. This link to frequently asked questions says it.

        In these days I would be wary of any outfit wanting my SSN. Before I retired we needed it on,y for those wanting the benefit of credit scoring to lower their insurance rates. Some states used to use SSN as their drivers license but heard they no longer do. I believe even Medicare has a number on their cards so a persons SSN isn’t public.

        For any outfit I do business with when they want my SSN they have to convince me it’s needed.

          I would be more concerned about giving them access to my bank account. Nothing would stop them from draining it. A credit card is a much safer way to go. Otherwise I would avoid this as a scam which it likely is.

            We found this out the hard way. It also goes for those that you allow to have direct deposit into your account. If they can deposit, they can also withdraw.

            Here is what we did - I opened a free checking account with no debit card, no checks. I have the direct deposits into that account. I have the direct pays come from that account. I just keep enough money in there to do business plus a little. So typically we have $2,000 in there. To me I'm limiting my exposure to the danger that you mention of someone draining the account.
