    Ever order auto parts online from a web site?

    Steve - feel free to move this after some time has elapsed. I posted it as an announcement as gmpartsdirect would seem to be affected, and a lot of Brammo Atom owners have ordered from them.

    If so, bad guys may have your credit card number, even if you didn't tell the web site to save it.

    I just got a (paper) letter from MileOne Automotive, which operates the getbmwparts.com and subarupartsdepot.com, stating that their web hosting contractor, trademotion.com, was hacked and information downloaded between March 5th, 2014 and May 17th, 2014, and that the information included name / address / email / phone / credit card. Note that I did NOT place an order during that time frame.

    MileOne is offering free 12-month credit monitoring by Experian to affected customers.

    The only other TradeMotion customer to have posted a public notice is AutoNation.

    However, TradeMotion provides some / all services for MANY other automotive web sites, such as GM Parts Direct. Just enter something like "trademotion honda" into Google to see how deep their tentacles run.

    It seems I have to get new credit card numbers every 6 months. had my identity stolen a few times as well. almost routine at this point.
