Pull your credit reports with the three credit reporting agencies and make sure that no new accounts have been opened in your name, and file a fraud report with all three of them. Other good stuff to do, other people will know about and tell you, I think, but that's a bare minimum...

Maybe do a google search, look for "What to do when you suspect your identity has been stolen" articles? I imagine the Motley Fool has something like that, too.

Good luck, and I'm so sorry this happened to you!
