More on Identity Theft

I received an email last week - my check request / balance transfer had been processed against my credit card account. This alarmed me because I hadn't requested any such thing. I checked it out: $8,000, plus a $150 processing fee had been taken out - I called them immediately. I answered a mess of questions and they told me that I wouldn't be charged, pending the results from an "investigator". I want to file a police report, but they suggested I wait till I hear from the investigator. This could be up to 10 days away.

I keep checking my credit otherwise. I closed some old accounts today. I've also signed up for a newer, less expensive credit protection. And I added some passwords.

Don't know what else to do.
