your best bet is to buy a credit monitoring service asap & alert some sort of law enforcement. call all your banks & cancel your cards, & possibly get a lawyer if you can afford it. you may have to file for a new SSN. keep a close eye on everything for now, but beware, scammers sometimes will hang onto info for years...
