    Well, you put your finger on it: identity theft. The girlfriend will have to report her Mom to the cops and/or DA to deal with. Also, any bills she gets, she should contact the finance company, explain that this is identity theft, fill out affidavits, etc.

    Make a police report for each card and the bring suit against the mother. You can do this in small claims unless the balance on any single card exceeds $10,000.00. It is essential that your girlfriend is not complicit. Your girlfriend must not benefit from her mother's actions.
