The use of a Credit Privacy Number, or CPN, is not a legitimate or legal way to build credit. 

Rental Kharma does not allow the use of a so-called CPN when setting up accounts with our company. 

In fact, using a CPN is a good way to get yourself in trouble with the law for identity theft. 

CPNs are not some extra batch of numbers set aside by the IRS for individuals with bad credit to create a new identity. They are actually the social security numbers of children, and thus qualify as identity theft. Attempting to use Rental Kharma to establish credit with a CPN can land you jail.
