7. File with the FTC
report the collection agencies that are harassing your mom to your state's AG.

If she hasn't already, she should send copies of the police report to the phone companies involved, including a nastygram with a message for them to call the debt back from the collectrolls and for them to do it sharpish. She needs to inform them that they are fraud.

The FTC will give her the names of the three CBR agencies (I think links may be on that site) She needs to contact them (with a pen and a notebook-they'll give her reference numbers) and report the fraud. Then she needs to follow up with a letter to all 3 saying she wants the 7 year warning on her CBR.

She should call her bank and put a # password on her acct. If her SSN is being used, she should password protect that too.

Good luck. If you have any questions down the line, please feel free to PM meI am an ex Fraud investigator, and more recently, an ID theft victim.
