Im very sorry that you have become a viictm of identity theft, however, it does not surprise me since there were 9 million viictms this past year. I do agree with what the others have said, however, since you have become a viictm and your info is out there chances are that it will be used again. Your info is most likely in a huge database just wating to be used again by the thieves. I would HIGHLY suggest investing in identity theft protection. If you would have had the protection, you would have found out 2 years ago about the theft. My family and I have SOLUS Identity Theft Protection and are very pleased! You can check out their website and learn more about identity theft atGood luck and take care
