check the 3 major credit bureaus: Equifax, Experian and TransUnion.
call the 3 above's fraud department and request them to put a victim's statement on your report. give them 2 contact numbers. by doing this, anytime someone opens or applies for an account, the creditor must contact you. this alert will last for 90 days. if you file a police report, the alert can last for 7 years.
call your bank or other major banks and request they do a search for your SSN to make sure you do not have any accounts with them.
