Go to your local Police Station and file a Police Report. Then go to the local office of Social Security Administration and file a report and request for a replacement. Click here for contact information:

Also contact all three major credit Reporting Agencies (Experian, Equifax, and Transunion) to put a security freeze on your account. With this you would be notified if someone tries to apply for credit using your information.

You also need to contact Credit Reporting Agencies to request a free copy of your credit report so that you can review the reports and then dispute any fraudulent information on the reports. Click on the link below to get a free report from each of the major Credit Reporting Agencies:
