We believe another person used your social security number (SSN) to obtain employment.
We are sending this notice to make you aware of this incident so you can take appropriate steps to protect yourself from any potential effects of identity theft. We'll not provide you specific details regarding the identity of the individual who used your SSN for employment purposes.
There is currently no known impact to your tax account as a result of this potential misuse. We placed a marker on your tax account to identify that you may have been a victim of identity theft.
The letter says I should check my SSA earnings record, monitor my credit reports, and place a fraud alert on my file with the credit bureaux. I'll do this. Are there any further steps that bogleheads would recommend?
