i have had my social security number stolen. what do i do to protect my identity?
ChexSystems contacted me in writing and verified that by pulling my social security number yielded two names, mine and another. they will not tell me who and advise me to contact the "appropriate agencies" and provided me with 7 pages of boilerplate. Who are the appropriate agencies, how do i reach them and what do i say to prevent someone from opening accounts in my name?

Contact Social Security NOW!!!

Helpful to 5 out of 6 people

Contact the Social Security Administration on the double!!  Otherwise, there could be dozens of accounts opened under your name.  They will know who to contact and how to put a halt to any further damage.

AND PUT YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY CARD IN A SAFE!!! You only need it a few times in your lifetime, but that number is a goldmine to a thief.
