Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

There is no way to block your social security numbers from being used if you are the victims of identity theft.

What you can do is the following:

1. Report the identity theft to the IRS.

2. Report the identity theft to one of the three major credit reporting agencies.

3. Report the identity theft to the Federal Trade Commission.

The following link contains the telephone numbers for the above as well as additional information you will find helpful:

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb
