Write letters to all three credit bureaus and ask them to "verify" the account.  Don't do it online, only in writing.  You'll need to provide 2 forms of ID with the letters to prove who you are, otherwise they'll just blow you off, claiming someone is trying to steal your identity.  You need to send something with your name & current address.  Driver's license, utility bill, copy of SS card are all good.  (Don't worry they already have this info, so you'r not at any risk sending it to them.).  It may take 2-3 attempts before you see results.  Best of luck!
