Does my fiance need an exact copy of 129f for embassy interview later?

You don't actually need to send her a copy at all, but if you're concerned with your fiancé(e) or embassy/consulate employees engaging in ID theft, or someone else reading your fiancé(e)'s mail, you've got bigger problems than this.

I think the thought was the courier taking it, or it getting lost/stolen in their home country.

 

A copy is not required. But it is wise to have in case any papers got lost along the way.

Yes, my friend's fiance was robbed, and then his ID was stolen.

 

In any case, doesn't embassy get everything from USCIS?

 

I do want to give her a copy but if someone steals this info from er somewhere, I was thinking about removing SSN.

She really doesn't need the I129f part of the application, but if you front-loaded it with any information you may want to make sure she has a copy of any evidence you added to the petition, as that is what they will be using to base their questions on at the interview. If you added photos, boarding passes, etc. they may bring that up and it would be good if she had something to study before the interview. If you are really concerned you can invest in a service like Lifelock, or something similar to protect your credit. I use a service I pay annually and have had no problems. Only a few times in say 5-6 years has someone tried to obtain credit using my social, and the service stopped them in their tracks. They were trying to buy a 180,000 RV in my name in Arizona somewhere when they notified me of the credit app being run. I knew where and had had their phone number in a few minuets, and you should have heard the disappointment in the salesman's voice when he found out his " Buyers" were on the way to jail, and he wasn't going to have a good Christmas after all with the big fat commission, LOL. I have no idea how they got my information, but I never heard from them again. It was great fun though to call the dealership, ask for the manager, and say hello, this is Loren, we have a problem, and he was like why are you calling me from the showroom, aren't you here, Not exactly. It was great, only way to make it better is if I was there to see them when the police showed up.

In theory, yes.

Does something get lost in transit sometimes? Sure. Do IOs & COs lose papers? Yes, they are human.

If anyone at the embassy wanted to steal SSN all they have to do is access a file and there is the SSN . You can black out the SSN that you send to your fiancé on the I-129f form. If you are concerned about your SSN being compromised you should "freeze" your credit reports then no one but you can access them. JMHO.

 

The I-129f is not needed nor is a requirement for the interview but if your though was that she would information about you to answer questions then that would be a choice you would have to make.
