I've lost my social security number.
I'm not american, but i lived there once and had an ssn.
I'm in australia, not in the united states, so i can't walk to a social security office and show them my id.
How can I find out my what my number was?

My social security card was stolen many years ago by a housemate's boyfriend, who for reasons know only to him, also stole my socks and my toothbrush. Not long after than I lost pretty much everything I owned while I was out of the country, so all my records from that time are gone.
(it was a bad year for property retention i guess)
I now need to know the number and given that the nearest social security office is in the us embassy in The Philippines I was wondering if there is an easier way than dealing with a busy office in another time zone. I tried one online service that claimed to be free but then wanted wanted credit card dollars to register.
thanks for your help
