Hope you called police first.

This site is an interactive computer program that can help people to develop good credit management habits.  It has absolutely nothing to do with such things as stolen licenses and such.

However, you WILL want to keep an eye on your credit reports even more now because the information on that license just might be what a thief needs for identity theft.  Go to annualcreditreport.com and request copies of your credit reports from all 3 bureaus.  Look them over very carefully and file disputes on every piece of WRONG information with the credit bureau reporting it.  They have to investigate and either verify or delete the disputed items.  Make it a habit to do this credit check every year to make sure all information is correct. 

You may wish to contact the credit bureaus to see about getting a fraud alert added to your reports.  That way, anyone who may wish to  open a new credit account (even you, which is a hassle but worth it) can't until after the credit bureau clears the transaction with you.

Hope this helps.
