This law makes it extremely dangerous to hire a criminal. They won't give you a receipt, or a legitimate SSN or any proof that they have indeed been paid. Now they can come back with a cause of action that they have not been paid.

This is something I saw quite frequently when my office was open.

Someone is having work done on their property. They hire a licensed contractor. A scammer will drive by, see that work is being done, or if completely inside, see a contractor's sign, or any evidence of construction. The scammer will run down and file a Mechanic's Lien against the property alleging that THEY had done the work and not been paid. Then they will contact the property owner to demand some kind of payment to remove the Lien.

This is a scam that individual criminal aliens might use now that they have legitimacy.
