A: Whatever your former employer is doing it is not something that I would ever advise anyone to do. Depending upon what the company does--and knowing what arm of the government is requesting current employment information--it appears the company may be asking for enormous trouble.

Having said that, please understand that I am NOT advising you to do anything official about this situation--other than perhaps telling these guys that you do not want your name and/or you SSAN published anywhere; and you can ask them not to do it. Keep a record of this incident.
