I am very confused and don't know what to do. My mother, who has had a very bad history of paying bills and has recently undergone bankruptcy, has used my social security number and my name to start up a new phone account. I did a credit check and it did not come up so I don't know which phone company it is. My husband has left messages with social security fraud offices but we have not gotten a response yet. We just had a baby and are ourselves struggling to make certain payments. We are very afraid that this new bill will not be paid and will come to affect us. I believe we are not responsible for this bill since I never authorized my mother to do this. Yet, I don't know what else I can do. We live in New Mexico and my mother lives in California. I think when the phone people did a credit check, they should have picked up that my current address is in New Mexico. I'm very upset at their mishandling of this issue. Do you have any suggestions?
