A few years ago, my friend lived with his parents. He eventually moved out, and they were eventually evicted. He recently learned that they used his SSN without his consent in order to place the power bill at their new residence under his name. He has been recently notified by the power company that his own parents have placed him in over $2000 of debt. He is poor and struggles to make ends meet. Is there anyway he can clear this debt?

Dispute it immediately with the credit reporting agencies (all three) and then call the police.

This. No joke, have your friend start asap. And dont be surprised if there are many more bills in the friends name like cable, internet, cell phone plans, etc. This could potentially become a nightmare. Even consult a lawyer right away. The friend should press charges.

My wife had this happen to her from her mother. Ultimately because she wasn't willing to press charges she had to file bankruptcy to get it all out of her name. And she was only 21 at the time so imagine being that age and not really able to get anything that you need credit for. Since then she has that lifelock service and hasnt had a problem since. This was almost ten years ago so finally its off her record but it was a long 7 years of not being able to buy a car unless with cash, not having to pay large deposits for appartments, and still randomly having creditors call for collection. Now her siblings are the victims of the identity theft yet no one is ever willing to press charges so this woman gets away with it.

Yea have them get on the ball right away.

OP here. What should he say to the police?

Have him call the non emergency police line and have him tell them what happened, that his parents used his name and ssn to open an account with the local power company without his permission.

Thank you for your advice, I'm trying to tell him to do this now. He's contacted transunion. Any reason why he should contact the other two? I believe you, just curious.
