Go to first. Make sure your assumptions are accurate. If there are unrecognized accounts, call the bureaus and request a fraud alert on your file. Then you may want to file a police report. Lastly you are gonna have to spend some time contacting the lenders and disputing and explaining the situation. Good luck.
