False messages of API calls limit exceeded

I have been receiving messages from Api calls limit exceeded for days, even if no activity is done. Furthermore the following day is not reset and continues to give the same error. What can this anomalous behavior be due to?

We are using the Trading API of eBay. When we control on developer account, eBay response API account: No usage data found. but every time we are accessing our eBay account and try to make changes at the eBay connector's end, we got this warning from eBay: **the day limit has been exceeded**. error code: 1800 error classification: RequestError

I wonder if someone has gotten a hold of your API key (or AppID) and abused it. If, for example, you have your AppID exposed via a client-side/Javascript application, then it could've been easily swiped that way. You should check the performance of the API key shortly after eBay does its daily quota reset at midnight US Pacific Time. Run your scripts/software to check around 12:05 am (in case of clock drift, a few mins after midnight). Which API call are you referring to? Is it one of the API calls that shows usage reports within your eBay Dev portal?
