Someone used my SS to open a paypal account

Not sure is this is the correct forum for this. I tried to use by PayPal account and got a message that my account was limited. Gave them a call and apparently a 2nd PayPal account was opened using my SS. They resolved the situation but now I need to know what else should I do to follow up. My 3 reports are frozen, lexusnexis is frozen. Should I freeze any others?

I'm going to flag your post so the mods can review it and relocate the thread for you if it is better served by being elsewhere on the site.
