Did you provide it to them or did they steal it.

Either way it is against the law.

As Richard states below, they could ruin your credit and run up large debt that will make your life miserable trying to correct.

You will receive the benefits and higher tax rate. However when you file your income tax IRS will want to know about the other income and when they check it they will find out that you have questionable income so you may end getting a prison time for tax fraud. It’s not really a good idea. You can talk to attorney immigration services to discuss this matter and help your friend getting a visa as well. An immigration attorney can help you understand the laws and can help you increase your chances of getting a visa and other legal documents approved.

I would start with the social security administration. Then contact the three credit bureaus about putting a fraud alert on your report to prevent credit being apply for fraudulently.
