    Just got this, asking us to look over our data.

    Hello all!

    This is coming from our new store software to all active members. We have been transferring and cleaning up data in order to use our new system. We want to have one more set of eyes to look at your addresses, and that's you!

    Please go to this link and log in using the email address this email came to, and your old club password (unless you have changed it in the new store).

    As we continue to bring up new systems and software, this will remain your membership log in and password. You may change either at anytime by logging in. However, each membership you have must have a unique email address as that will be your log in from here forward. If you don't know your password, use the retrieval link and then log in and change it.

    After you log in, please check all of the tabs and make sure your information is accurate. You will have until Tuesday at 5 pm central time to make any changes to your address(es). After that time we will lock the files and create the mailing lists for this year's membership figure and your April issue. Your April issue will run about 2 weeks late. Next month, we should be back on our regular schedule.

    We have limited the access in this first implementation of the club store. There are still some issues we have to work out this week before we put product in. We want to make sure all of the data is correct before we move forward.

    If you have more than one membership and have trouble getting into your second account or if you have accounts in both clubs, please contact customer service and we will assist you. It is more efficient for you to email us. Don't reply to this email, use the links on the bottom of all of our pages.

    In addition, approximately 150 of you will expire this next week (check your Bill Date in your profile). The new system automatically renews you on your billing anniversary provided you have a valid credit card on file. If you don't want to leave it on file, you can come back after it is billed (you can see the charge in your account) and delete it.

    Thanks for your support and help!

    Brian

    when I click the link, chrome warns me "The server's security certificate is not yet valid! ... You should not proceed, especially if you have never seen this warning before for this site." lol

    If you bother to read the e-mail, it says this link is to confirm your mailing address for Runamuck. That is the news.

    ...and so my G.I. Joe membership is the only one showing up. Moreover, I was supposed to "confirm" my choice of exclusive (applies to G.I. Joe Club - 12" or 3 3/4"), but I don't see anywhere I can do that.

    And store my CC info? Yeah, that ain't gonna happen.

    Wouldn't the fact that they auto-bill you now imply that they still have credit card numbers stored in their database somewhere? Isn't that the reason for the whole debacle? All I have to ask is: WHY?!

    I hope not. I still can't believe they are saving the card info on the new system. Pretty screwed up, imo.

    At least they're getting stuff out. However, the timing is pretty funny.

    Yeah, only my G.I. Joe membership shows up but no TF, I'm paid up on both till next year. Why isn't it showing up?


    As for 12" or 3 3/4" G.I. Joe choices, go to Customer Contact Info.

    So if I read my account info correctly my subscription expires 3/5/13. I renew every August, why are they changing it?

    Oh and I did just notice this on the website:



    If you cannot even correct typos why should we think anything else is secure?

    Where did you find your expiration date? I was trying to find it, but didn't see it anywhere.

    I am guessing that is what Bill Date is.

    Hmmm, not sure. I'm almost positive my subscription was coming due sometime in May. My Bill Date in 02/13/13, that would mean they were giving me almost a year for free. Who know.
