How would I go about finding out who signed me up for trial memberships via phone or online?

Short story......I have been signed up for 3 different 30 day trial membership clubs in the last 3 months that I did not authorize. Direct One Long Distance, Members Discount Club, and Promenade. Two of which were charged to my mother's credit card which has not been used by myself or my mother in over 4 years.
I've made a zillion phone calls and NO ONE will or can tell me "WHO" has signed me up. The card has been cancelled, charges dropped. Now, 1 month later, I have received another membership for Direct One Long Distance. They said it was authorized on a certain date....done on my computer line (second phone line) which is never used for anything exept internet dialup.
Do I have any legal leg to stand on in this case? What can I do? Now I'm afraid for other credit cards also.
This is scaring me.
Thank you
