You and me both...

You're facing an uphill battle, but it can be fixed.

My ex-wife opened three cards in my name (not our names) while I was serving my country overseas.  She max'd them out for me.  Then she got a tummy-tuck on a "care-credit" account...she again opened in my name and left that for me too when she filed for divorce a few months later all while I was overseas.  In all, she ran up $70, 000 in debt.  Some of which was still coming back to haunt me 2 years later on my credit report.  She's a real peach. 

The good news is you can fight it.  Contact the banks and credit card companies.  File a report with the police.  And buckle down for what is an arduous journey to clear your name.  I just recently got the care-credit account overturned after that bank did an inquiry on the initiation of the account and agreed that I was in fact out of the country when it was opened. 

You're not alone.
