Re-cycled social security card?

I just received my first social security card about 8 months ago. Recently I applied for an auto loan to get to my two jobs and I found that my attached to this new number were negative credit issues that go back to 2001. I was probably just starting high school when this happened. Instructed by my lawyer, I went to the social security office to get the number replaced, since they gave me a card that already had a bad credit history. I was told to call the identity theft hotline and that it would take from 6 to 10 years to close. This identity theft happened when the number had not been issued to me and social security gave me this number that already had this problem.

Any feedback on how I can get this problem solved in present tense?

Before Freezing Credit, Consider Opening Social Security Online Account

A report states that, in order to establish an online Social Security account at ssa.gov, the Social Security Administration must have access to your credit report to verify your identification.

Thus, before freezing your credit (to mitigate the risk of recent hacks), consider setting up an account at ssa.gov first.
