It might be helpful if you said what state.

A driver's license by itself? They could sign up for new accounts. For existing accounts, it's less damaging.

Tell the woman "My ID card has disappeared. You're the only person I can think of with the opportunity to have taken it. It's easy to replace, so no bid deal. I'm not accusing you, but you should know that your name will be mentioned if I am ever the victim of identity theft."

In many states, including Texas where the OP lives, they're exactly the same for all ID/legal purposes.

If your ID is stolen, you need to report ot to the police and be ready to file charges.

What "mischief " can she do? You wint call it "mischief " when she opens credit cards or takes loans in your name ( not all require a photo ID especially credit card online applications), and when she charges them up then fails to pay AND YOU get stuck paying the bills or having your credit rating destroyed, you wont think its "mischief ". No it will be out right IDENTITY THEFT.

She can cause you all kinds of problems, all in your name.

DO NOT fool around with this...go to the police IMMEDIATELY and report your ID stolen.

Then check your credit report, itll cost you a few bucks for a current accurate one, but well worth it. Go over it with a fine tooth comb and look to see credit you ypurself did not sign up for.

Then freeze your credit. If you apply again fir credit or loan, youll have to unfreeze it again, but you want to be sure you arent a victim.

Only way to be sure youre not liable for false credit in your name is to file reports with the police.
She could be using your ID now, or could use ut in the future when she thinis youve forgotten about it.

Do NOT confront her regardless of how well intentioned you may make it sound, DO NOT confront her, let the police do it. Thats what we pay taxes for them to do.

As i said, when it gets very serious, you wont think its just "mischief ".

Best of luck to you in resolving the matter.

If you dont go to the police, and she uses your identity, you'll have no reason to complain.
