Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.I am genuinely sorry to hear that you are in this situation. To answer directly, the use of your title and name without your consent is not permitted since you as the holder of the name must consent to the use of your identification and likeness. There is no inherent restitution here but you can potentially file civilly against them for damages to your name, reputation, and likeness over repeated use of your name--that is less a criminal matter although there may be elements of forgery or fraud if someone signed as you without your intent, but it is instead more of an intellectual property concern. Your name and likeness is your intellectual property which you have a right to protect.Hope that helps.
