Hi,

When is the last time you successfully accessed your old account ?

You are correct, after 12 months of inactivity the account no longer exists.

I can't see how you can recover something that no longer exists or instinct, it's like trying to give life to dinosaur or a christian devoured by a lion during the Roman Empire.

Well, I wish you the very best of luck. If you get to recover your account within your life time, please, do let me know, I will certainly announce it to the rest of the world on the web.

It was my pleasure to correspond with you and good luck in your eternal search and goal.
