I recently bought a 2nd hand ticket from a person in Pune.
he told me that the ticket had a validity till 8 aug, which i checked in the voucher as correct.
Now once i got into booking my exam slot, i came to know that the ticket had already expired because the date was
in mmddyyyy format .
This was not mentioned anywhere on the voucer. so I urge the exam makers to consider putting in a more user freindly date on the voucher.
and i came to know that i was not the only one with this kind of problem.

In your case, I am not sure. Did you know the person who sold it to you because, in all honesty, sounds like they sold it knowing it was expired (or just about to expire).

Seems to be a lot of people getting caught out by the US format. Perhaps one of those threads can give you some ideas?
