What actions can I take if my father stole my identity? Posted on August 06, 2011

I got a letter in the mail saying that I owe $45.50 in debt to a local newspaper. The debt collector claims that it is because I never paid on a subscription to that paper. Here's the issue, my Dad ordered that subscription. He claimed it was a birthday gift. He never paid whatever he owed on it. Instead he used my name and information to buy the subscription or whatever. He has done something like this to my uncle. My question is do I pay the debt? DO I tell the debt collector the story? Do I tell them what my dad did? DO I pursue legal action?
