    Should I be concerned about identity theft if a former girlfriend attempts contact after 17 years?

    I have recently received a message on Facebook from a former girlfriend that I had stopped seeing 17 years ago.  It was a single sentence question inquiring if I was the person she had dated and dumped 17 years ago.  It felt vengful to me so I deleted it without responding to the message.  My father received a debt collection call for this woman the other day and as far as I know he has never met this woman.  Should I be concerned about fraud or identity theft?

    Yes. She has apparently done something illegal using your name. I would contact the Credit bureaus immediately.
