    HOW IN THE WORLD WOULD YOU REMEMBER THE DATES OF ANY PARTICULAR SUBSCRIPTION. I WAS A CUSTOMER FOR THAT WHOLE PERIOD BUT I CERTAINLY DON’T KNOW THE DATES OF ANY SPECIFIC CHECK. THANK YOU

    ADMIN – Hi John,

    I generally take two paths when facing questions about timelines:

    1. Call the provider and ask

    2. put approximate dates.

      I called the provider and was given the date of my nearest subscription to the date I indicated, and was also given the last four digits of the credit card I used (because my last four numbers had changed since that subscription due to theft of my credit card info. The poor guy who gave me this information was probably canned……LOL
