I'll make a long story short here We are looking into changing our social security numbers, due to identity theft. How do you go about this? Should we change names too? (course we would only recognize a name change on paper)--If you can change your s.s. # what still follows you ie:bills, loans, drivers license.....you'd have to change all that too right? Basically what I am wondering is does changing your s.s. # start you over legally? Do theft induced bad credit follow you? How about court issues where your s.s.# was used but you weren't involved in the offense? Really need to know, Thanks in advance.
