    Johnie...what still makes me worried for you is that you said they had your social security number. Did they have the entire number or just the last 4 digits?? If they have your entire social and your personal info like address etc. They could still attempt to get credit in your name by applying for any number of cards.:(

    Good for you for taking care of everything so quickly...but be sure to look into the other ways they could abuse your identity.

    I would make sure you contact the 3 major credit reporting companies (Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion) and they will put a block on your credit report so no one can apply for credit cards etc.

    Johnie ~ your thread made the decision for me to join . I'm worried about you , sweetie . Figment is right, the fact that they have your SS # worries me . Might be worth a call to the SS office to alert them . Did you freeze your active bank accounts and change the account #'s . Also, alert your CC companies . Good Luck .

    I am going to call social security tomorrow. The first call had my entire ssn. Today they just wanted to verify the last 4 digits.

    I have closed my bank accounts and changed the numbers. I can't imagine anyone is going to get any credit from my info that would make them happy.
