Hello, Mr. Long,
I just renewed my membership with ARSC and inadvertently sent you $15 too much via PayPal. Thought I had clicked Basic Member ($45) and Canada or Mexico ($15 additional postage) for a total of $60 but was charged $75. Would you kindly provide a refund?
Thanks in advance, best regards, and season's greetings,
