If the false number you choose happens to belong to a real person, that's at least two federal crimes, one of which is aggravated identity theft which carries a mandatory minimum 2-year prison sentence. Geez. Don't ever do that.
I've had at least one place which insisted they needed a SSN and I refused to give it put down a random number. I've never consented or signed off on that random number as being my SSN, but they've opted to include it in their records. Not a crime on my part, but on theirs? Feels kinda hazy.
