Duty to report Social Security/SSI Fraud-How to do when don't have persons SSN or DOB?

Asked almost 2 years ago - Fernandina Beach, FL

Have tenant renting unit who constantly finds something he says needs repair/replacing and takes upon himself to do then sends invoice and charges for work he's done to be taken off rent. Has stated in writing he gets SS benefits. We go to property to collect rent and wife says he's at work (allegedly for sister under table). He also got on roof assisting another tenant with applying sealant and says he fell off and injured self. Sent in writing that Medicare/Medicaid paid $765 for med bills. (He's total fraud). Owner unfortunately does not have his SSN. He is being put out this month (month-to-month at will tenant). Will SSA be able to associate who he is without an SSN #/DOB so they can review him? I doubt he is using address where he rents. Not age 65 so has to be disability.

    Date of birth of the beneficiary
    Details regarding the allegation, such as when it happened, how it was committed, and where it took place.
