What to do if you discover that someone in the Dominican Republic has used your identity to make a false American passport?

Is there a direct number where you can talk to someone at the American embassy?

Thanks for any information.
I would call the US Embassy first and foremost.

You will need supporting documentation. If you have a birth certificate or an expired passport be prepared to present them.

The OP said that he knows of a case of identity theft to obtain a US passport.
I think the most important thing for him to do is to immediately call the frraud unit and make his report. Whatever information they need, they will tell him when he calls.

Massielg, I hope you will report back on how this goes. This would be good information for us to know.
