Legal Question in Credit and Debt Law in New York

I had a certain individual who I let use my phone in order to be able to contact his friends through out the night while I spent the night at his house. He used the phone to contact a sex hotline and used his credit card information in order to procure service from the hotline. The hotline is now telling me that I am going to be charged with identity theft. What should I do.
