    The thought of someone using your ID for their own use is scary. (Another lesson in keeping your SSN to yourself.)

    He should get in touch with the credit people (Equifax, Experian, et al.) and keep on top of his credit activities. If he sees someone opening unauthorized lines of credit, etc., he should immediately take action. (Notify the credit reporting agencies, get a police report, and if necessary, get the D.A.'s office involved.) Credit fraud is a serious crime and, if he's not vigilant about his own credit status, it could be years before he clears his name and credit rating.

    put extra controls on your bank accounts -- contact your bank and ask them to include an additional security question if anyone calls to request information. Also, put a credot alert on your account just in case someone tries to open an account in your name...
