Someone set up a fake email address in my name...?So, I started getting calls about 2 months ago from telemarketing companies saying I signed up to receive information about their products. These companies had my name and mailing address. When I asked them what email they had, they gave me a " mac.com " address that is not mine. I don't even have a mac.

So far, I've received a DVD from Columbia House - I was signed up for a movie membership. I've gotten lots of calls from resorts in Florida, for some reason, and a timeshare.

I notified Apple and they apologized but can't do anything about it - it was a free trial and there is no other information connected to the account.

I checked my credit report and there's nothing unusual. What do you suggest I do? Should I check my credit every month or something? What about the calls?

Has this happened to anyone else? At this point it's just annoying, but I'm nervous it's going to affect my credit eventually. Thanks for any serious responses!
