wow.....what a bitch. Turn her in, you need good credit these days!!!

You know that you're on the hook to repay the debts your Mom ran up under your name, don't you? Even if you aren't sued for repayment and/or choose not to pay off the debts, your credit will be trashed for 10 years. This will affect nearly everything you need/want: college loans, apartment rental, car loan, mortgage, JOB (many employers check credit before deciding to hire). The only way to restore your good credit it is to file an identity theft report with the police, then go about cleaning up the mess your Mom left you.

She needs your good credit because hers was already shot. You should turn her in.

What a nice Mom you have there. I would make her pat everything off, and if she refuses, turn her in.

Well if you can't get any compensation from her, deal with it the american way ... SUE

She needs to take some sort of legal action.

that IS the American way.

So you would let someone walk all over you?!?!

Turn her into the police. She obviously doesn't care about you that much.

Teenage bankrupcy.

Really? Wow...your mother is a bitch.

Whether she's willing to pay up or not, the only way to reverse the damage is to report the identity theft. Paying everything off in one go will prevent further damage to your credit, but everything she did will stay on your report for the next 10 years if you don't report her.

There's a depressingly large number of FMLs about parents stealing money and identities. One of my friends went to apply for her first credit card when she turned eighteen, was immediately denied. Turns out her mom had been using her daughter's identity for nearly ten years.
