First off, your name and address is not enough for someone to use to open an account. Now, if someone has stolen your social security number that may be an issue. All you really need to do to be proactive is to keep an eye on your credit reports (don't forget about Experian). If you are really concerned about this then you will want to place a freeze on your credit with the credit bureaus. Transunion, Equifax and Experian all have websites with instructions on how to do so. Keep in mind that the freeze will also prevent you from getting credit, so you would have to go back and undo it, so save all information associated with the process if you decide to do it.
