I noticed that the ms from System.currentMillis has 3 extra digits, ie 

1520835640781   from system.currentimemillis
1520764777      from api im using

so I assume I just need to add some value to the one that is giving me 
errors? Think ive done this before but i cannot recall what I need to add.
