There is really no way for anyone to know that. If you are real concerned, change all of your passwords to credit card companies, banking accounts, etc, and monitor them.

Just don't tell anyone anything on the phone, no matter who they say they are or what info they have on you already. It's called social engineering.

"Hi this is John from NSA, for security reasons can YOU confirm your name, address, security number, DOB"

"ok blah blah.."

"Thanks, we'll be in touch soon"

Then they use your information for any number of reasons. Really what you want to try and do is get their information about who they are. Or just say "I dont believe who you say you are". They will probably hang up and try someone else.
