What did you think they were doing?

You can only have your credit pulled if you give them certain information and agree to the credit check.  What did you think they were going to do with your social security number and birthdate if not applying to a credit card?  It sounds like you called about Pay Pal, were told that they can provide a different option with Chase bank card, so you agreed to apply when you gave them your SS and BD.  So remember, NEVER give your SS# to anyone unless you know why they need it and what it will be used for, not forgetting what protections they provide you when transmitting or storing the information.
