If you decide to protect your daughter without prosecution, you will have to live with the decisions she has made.  You may want to consider freezing all of the credit bureaus to stop her from further damage.  The only way you can seek to repair the damage is to file a police report and proceed to fight every account she signed up for.   Absent this, your only recourse is to contact every firm and move the accounts to your full control (address, contact and payments).   If they offer a freeze so that the cards cannot be used, then invoke it.   Closing these accounts is an option if you are prepared to pay them off in full and it will not affect your average age of accounts, although, if they are new accounts, this should have little effect.   They will remain on your credit report for 7 years.
