If someone opened a 1st premier account and ATT account by using your name and SS #, then its credit abuse. You will want to:
1. File a police report with your local dept (you can just call and an officer will take your statement and forward it to a detective)
2. File a complaint with the FTC online: http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/microsites/idtheft/cons
3. Place a fraud alert by calling Transunion: 1-800-680-7289 (They will automatically place an alert on yor EX & TU)
4. Monitor your reports for unauthorized activity
