Get the 3 credit reports

Helpful to 6 out of 8 people

That's the first step--getting the reports from all 3 credit bureaus.  Go to freecreditreport.com and request them.  Then go over them carefully to see what items are NOT yours.  Look to the left of this post under RESOURCES, find Articles and scroll down to find the article on Disputes, because you will want to file disputes on all erroneous items on your reports.  That does not mean negative remarks on accounts that are yours, but the fraudulent accounts that are a result of ID theft.

Cleaning up ID theft may take time and considerable effort, but only you can get it started and pursue it until things are straight.

Wish you the best.
