hello sir/madam, this is called impersonation, you will need to file a report with the Internet Crime Complaint Center (online) from http://www.ic3.gov/ click "file a complaint" and from the next screen, select the first option (Submit a cyber crime complaint with the IC3) and then from the next screen, click "i accept" and follow on-screen instructions carefully
