I am so sorry to read about this.

You have been scammed. There is no fee to request for a replacement SSN Card. You need to go to the local office of Social Security Administration tomorrow to report this incident.

You should 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 in the future if someone tries to apply for credit using your information.

File a Police Report. Also file report with the FBI.

Best wishes,

A positive rating to my response is appreciated so that I can receive credit for responding to your post. There is no additional cost to you for giving a positive rating.

Thank you for your cooperation.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
