Atlantic Cigar breach?

Post by 815DC » Tue Mar 21, 2017 4:30 pm

Hey fellow BOTL it is I DC,
I must admit to some concern today as I received a letter in the mail from what certainly appears to be Atlantic Cigars' processing center stating a notice of a Data Breach. (3-17-17) The letter went on about a free basic identity theft sub to AllClear ID, but I already pay lifelock for their basic service. Anyone else do business with Atlantic and get this or hear anything about it?

I got the same letter. Ive also seen it posted on another forum. Appears to be a real breach. It was discovered in Nov, and I personally have not had any fraud, so maybe it won't be an issue.

Same letter. Have LifeLock, too. Don't think I'll be buying from there until I get the "all-clear" from them.

Sucks cause they have a great selection at really good prices.

Maybe it's like becoming one with the cigar. You lose yourself in it; everything fades away: your worries, your problems, your thoughts. They fade into the smoke, and the cigar and you are at peace. - Raul Julia

Yea I literally just placed an order with them a few days ago and now this. Wish I had a real tobacconist and I would just use cash. :|

Have a couple of tobacconists here in the 5 boroughs that I wish I could support, but those taxes...I just can't justify it. I'll buy a stick here or there, but my big purchases are done online. Painful, but true.

yeah here I have either:
A the local liquer store which keeps Padrons and Punch's a shelf above the ACID cigars in their glass front cabinet.

B the old cigar store which is actually a front for ...friendly wagering and will sell you a cigar kept with no humidity regulation (ok in the middle of summer- not so much the rest of the year). Plus there is that pesky concern of worrying the cops are gonna raid the place when your there haggling over a Quorum Toro

C a classy place called tobacco and beer where one can get lost in the glass pipes, poor lighting, and the best of Bollywood playing.

Oh! and D- Another "tobacco store" about 20-30 min out where they do have a walk in humidor- with literally a home humidifier in it. Same Bollywood jams, same shady pricing, same array of 'glassware', same setup of ACIDs snuggling next to regular sticks. That and what seems to be a Gosh Darn Shrine to friggin Rocky Patel Sticks! I swear these guys see the name Patel and are like "dat is what I will sell". The guy's stuff is flippin everywhere he has almost half to 1/4 of a wall section.

Thus online it is and the risks therefore involved.

OK so I just got done cancelling my credit cards as fraudulent charges were made in bulk yesterday and this morning. I strongly advise anyone who got the databreach letter to cancel their cards and start a new one. Or at the very least be watching like a hawk.
Good luck fellows!
Now on to the bank to continue to sort this mess out.
