Don't feel SAFE to provide my ssn thru Fiverr W9 request

Lately, Fiverr asked all of US people to file W9 on the site.
But I am worried about providing personal information through the site is safe or not. What would they gonna do with all our info? I tried to fill that bloody form 3 times, but all these thoughts kept bothering me…

If Fiverr must do this, I’ll just need to quit using it then.
Any other people having the same concern?
