FILE POLICE REPORT!!

Hope you notified police so they can be on the lookout, and you should get a copy of the pollice report.  Notify your bank and all the credit card companies so they can get a freeze on the number.  Otherwise you may be held liable for the debts someone else charges on the cards.  Notify Social Security so they can take action and you follow their instructions.  You'll have to get a replacement driver's license so you'll have to make a quick trip to DMV.  Ask the bank and/or Social Security how you get a fraud alert placed on your credit files so no one can open other accounts in your name.

AND DO THIS NOW!!! Speed is essential!!!
