    Call the IRS and ask them for the Vendors Federal Tax ID Number, and explain who refused to give it. And they will know immediately if the “business” is registered with the Federal Government or not, if not, then they will investigate the Social Security number of the business owner who is then a sole proprietor and is personally exposed to a Federal Tax Lien. That will cure the situation fast.
