Notify the Credit bureaus right away.

You can go on their respective websites  and do this or you can call them. 

A fraud alert can be set on your report so that no credit info will be shared with anyone that you don't already do business with, or that you have authorized. 

Monitor your credit reports.  Get Free copies of your credit report at AnnualCreditReport .com. You can get 1 free copy of each of the big 3 reports once a year.  I suggest that you only get 1 at a time, since they generally all have the same info on them.  That way you can go back in  3 or 4 months and get another to see if anything has changed.  Then agian in 8 or 9 months.  

Google "Credit Fraud alert" for more info.  

Good luck 

If there are things on your report that you do not recognize as yours, contact the Credit Bureaus.
