You can can try calling your local police department and see if you can file. Im just concern they won't do it cause its been almost 6 yrs and they will probably tell you why this wasn't handled at that time. Have you asked how the account was open? internet app? mailed in app with signature?

i spoke with the company who said it was done over the phone from a number i never heard of and there was no app done and besides that i just found out about it in 2011 which is when i first started to dispute but i didnt know what i know now thanks to my fico forums

All you need in order to file a police report is a showing that it is in your CR, and thus damaging your credit, and willingness to assert under oath that you never authorized the account. Passage of time does not negate that need, as unless one pulls their CR regularly, substantial time could pass before they even become aware of the harm.
Your credit is currently suffering harm, and a police report is needed to invoke the identity theft provsions of the FCRA.
A police report is needed by statute to enforce your rights under the FCRA to get that information blocked from your credit report.
If the police decline to take a report, it is most likely because they dont understand the statutory need on your part, and are not viewing the identity theft issue from the needs of the consumer. Just call your state AG, who understands the need, and they will almost certainly contact the police agency and instruct them to take your report.
