Can I sue a former employer for using my name on mailing ads after I was fired?

Question Details: I worked for a auto repair shop for almost 5 years and was fired 5 months ago. I had a great customer base and I just found out today that the post cards they are mailing to customers still have my name on them acting like Im the one sending them and I still work for the company. Is this legal for them to do? Do I have any legal recourse?
