I am sorry for this dilemma. But not sure I understand your specific question. Do you have a question regarding this?

Hello. Yes. I found out on my credit that there was a Verizon bill of $1429 that wasn't from me and I already spoke with them about it to close the account. I thought my mother did it so I spoke with with her about it and she said she didn't do it. She also told me that it may be my oldest brother who might've opened an account with my ssn without my knowledge. So how would I go about this if it's him who did it?

Go about what? What are you trying to accomplish?
