You should activate a fraud alert as soon as possible. A fraud alert will require creditors to verify your identity with information other than your name, address and social security number. This is Equifax's link - https://www.alerts.equifax.com/AutoFraud_Online/jsp/fraudAlert.jsp  ....   Once you file, Equifax should then automatically contact TransUnion and Experian to place fraud alerts. You can use this site (Credit Karma) to monitor changes in your TransUnion credit report, but to get your full credit reports go to annualcreditreport.com (free once a year). You'll also be able get your credit reports for free once you file a fraud alert.
