I tend to agree.  I recently signed on with a banner ad agency, and couldn't
get around to faxing, so I ended up scanning and emailing scanned copies
of the documents.

I was sure to yank my SSN out of the scanned copy, and call them over the
phone to give it to them.

If only email encryption were more wide-spread.  (And, like, I got off my
duff and used it, too :) )
