Have you had your credit card info stolen between Oct 2017 & May 2018?

I reported my credit card info stolen on three separate occasions between last November and May. In the process of notifying my bank and closing business associations with companies that may not have been protecting my data, I basically took myself out of the market for BMW parts.

As it turns out, a company associated with Trademotion (also a sponsor of this website) was involved and a high level user's account information was compromised. On five separate occasions credit card info was extracted from the server, including mine.

Today I received a letter in the mail from Trademotion notifying me of the breach. It doesn't do a damn thing to sort out the mess that was caused all three times by the compromise, but at least now I know how it happened. Trademotion is offering a free year of LifeLock credit monitoring.

I got the same letter...and issue with stolen credit card info.

But what was the actual name of the Company that sold the parts?

Trade Motion is like a web host/service provider for dealers. They also offer online E-Commerce stores. They've been hacked three times over the past couple of years.

I also had three of my credit cards' compromised last year due to the trade motion data breach. Popular part sources such as GetBMWParts, etc use them.
