How to remove personal info from fraudulent DNS listings?

I've stumbled on a couple of internet domains registered in my name and contact information that I've got nothing to do with - not sure how to proceed.

They were set up around 9 months ago, and I do recall having some odd charges show up on a credit card in the same period - the account was closed and the charges reimbursed, but I'm concerned some of the fallout from that incident is still floating around with my name and address on it.
The registrars are listed as "Internet.bs"
and "0101 domain"
and I've found a couple of small hosting sites in NJ and PA (Linode and 1&1 Internet). My instinct is to start there, but I'm uneasy having never heard of any of them (not that there aren't 10 gazillion domain resellers and web hosts I haven't heard of, but still) and was wondering if folks had any different ideas about who to contact and how to unravel this - Thanks!
