Have you ever had an AT&T Wireless account? If not, then this is Not Your Debt. You must dispute it with TransUnion, telling them that they have someone else's info on your report. (It sounds like you already have.)

The next question is, whether this account showed up on your credit report due to intentional malice on the part of the person in TX, or to an accidental error in reporting to TransUnion. The fact that AT&T has your SSN rather than the other person's makes it sound like it is indeed malicious.

This is serious identity theft. File a police report locally, and ask them if you should also notify the police dept in TX. Good luck with it, and keep us updated!
