Someone did time under my social security #. what do i do?

Asked about 1 year ago - Ojai, CA

A man did 18 months of prison time for a drug charge with my name and social security number in New York in 2006. I am based in California and have never been to New York. I was completely unaware of this situation until my new employer notified me. What do I do now?
