First, you need to contact the lending institution ASAP to inform them that your signature has been forged.    

Since forgery is a ciminal offense, you should also contact your local law enforcement agency to report the matter. The person who forged your signature could be prosecuted, particularly if a substantial amount of money is involved.

Hope his helps, and good luck,
