If there are accounts on your credit report that were established before you reached adulthood, they can be disputed on the basis of stolen ID prior to your reaching the age of majority, just the same as if there were accounts showing that you had not established. I wouldn't be so quick to accuse your parents of such action.  Most errors on credit accounts are just that------errors.

File a dispute the the credit bureau on the validity of the account.   Providing proof of your age that these items were generated prior to reaching the legal age to enter into a contract and they will be removed from your credit report.  You don't have to prove who did it and why, the validity of the account being yours is your only concern on the dispute.
