Here are some basic steps:
1. Report the loss of your credit, ATM and debit cards to your bank asap. If you report a lost card within 2 days, you are only responsible for $50 of unauthorized charges.
2.Contact the social security office and they will tell you how to get new cards
3. Report your loss to a credit agency. They are bound by law to inform the other agencies. They keep the information for 90 days so if anyone tries to open a credit card in your name, they won't be able to. Here's the contact info for one:Equifax P.O. Box 740256 Atlanta, GA 30374, 1-800-685-1111, http://www.equifax.com/
4. Contact the police so there's a record. This will make it easier to prove future charges don't belong to you.
