TL;DR: contact them and politely ask for attribution.
Ideally you could work together towards OCA adoption.

I assume your module has always been licensed under (A)GPL
So anyone can change whatever they want as long as the source is 
available. To my knowledge you can't impose attribution under xGPL.
And they can charge whatever they like for their version. If they make 
money with your work, good for them - it's fair in the GNU spirit.

If they'd made a closed-source fork that's another story: then you'd be 
entitled to sue. But even then a direct and polite approach is said to 
give the best results.

In other news, Heonium's been officially out of business since october :
