Identity theft and fraudulent credit problem

What do you do or where can you turn too for actual help when your identity is stolen , used to ruin your lively hood and makes it impossible for recovery and a regular life amongst society. I can’t even get a secure credit card…I feel hopeless and more than depressed. It’s gone on over twelve years and continue to get worse :pensive:

I think you can try to change your legal name and address. Then get a new ID card, passport, email address, academic credentials with new name. That will solve the problem.

how do you go about doing that
