Account name
Account name will be in this format: FirstName (CIS-A2K). If your name is John Doe, your account should be named John (CIS-A2K). Note this is case sensitive. Use the same casing and spacing.

  • John (CIS-A2K) YesY
  • JOHN (CIS-A2K) NoN
  • John (cis-a2k) NoN
  • John(CIS-A2K) NoN

Reveal your account
