stolen credit

I purchased a new bike about 3 weeks ago from one of the big chain dealers here in Houston and about one week later I had my credit stolen. They had my name, address, phone number, and credit card number. I am not going to call out the name of the dealer because I'm not sure if my credit was stolen there or from somewhere else. I just want to find out if anyone else has had this happen to them. I know it was someone here in Houston because they ordered an exhaust system from modbargains.com for a 2007-2013 bmw 335i/xi e90/e92/e93 then called fedex told them they weren't going to be home (at my address where it was shipped) that they would be able to pick it up from the center later in the week here in Houston. They also ordered an ACOG style scope from sportsmanguide. I already notified my bank, made a police report, and talked to the GM at the dealer, and got in touch with both the stores where the items were purchased from. So if anyone has ever had this happen to them as well I would really appreciate you sharing your story with me I want to burn the people responsible for this. Feel free to Private message me if you don't want to post on the thread thanks

That happens to me at least once a year lol.

Info could have been hacked, or copied.

I only know of one time where I could tell exactly who stole my . I ate at Kim Hi and used a credit card I never use because I couldn't find my other one.

Next day visa is calling asking if I joined an online dating site.

The lenders don't even try to file charges against the thieves either...that's the sucky part.

I also had my ATM card cloned somehow. I think that happened when I went fishing and went to the ATM at 4am sleepy and didn't notice the equipment on the atm...

That's the only way they could have gotten my pin I am fairly sure.

Did you purchase the bike with the same credit card that was compromised? If you did then I assume you should not of had to give the dealer you SS#, which means no credit check was done?

Sorry bro, but hey, if I give you the exhaust can we call it even? Just kidding...

Man that sucks... I really hope it wasn't an employee of the dealership. The card company may not file charges on them but I'm sure the dealership can do something about it for sure. Can't trust anyone anymore...

@urbanXJ I've had my credit card # stolen before but usually its used out of state or over seas, it's never been this close to home. So that's what got me figuring it was someone around here.
@HondaTrvlr they used my drivers license and the card that was compromised as two forms of id.

given the types of purchases made and the timeline of when you applied for credit versus when the charges happened i would say its very likely that someone in that dealership used your credit and/or credit card to make those purchases.

maybe the police will let the guy pickup the products at the fedex store and arrest him? who knows

I've had my card information stolen twice. Later I became aware that the FBI had a sting in a close by gas station. Apparently the "thieves" inserted a device in one of the pumps that cloned your card information.
