Gearbest Order Information Compromised

FWIW, I received the following notification from Gearbest this morning:


 

Looks like my name, email address, and home addressed may have been compromised. Fortunately, I pay using PayPal so my payment information should be secure.

Same here, but my card was blocked by fraudalert on the 13th after a slew of crap charges was made. I probably got my card info “on file” at GB, but for the past coupla years used PP there.

Pain in the ass, now I gotta wait for a new card, etc. Had to go today to 7-11 to buy an amazon gift card for myself to pay for the 2 half-orders that were on-hold because payment was blocked. Sick
