Potential Erroneous Email Notifications

January 9, 2009 has received notice that some applicants have received conflicting e-mail notifications after a submission. The following scenario has manifested itself more than once;
  1. Applicant receives the Submission Receipt e-mail
  2. The applicant then receives a Rejection Notice for application with a list of errors
  3. This is followed by a Submission Validation Receipt for application e-mail
Applicants are receiving the third validation e-mail without correcting any errors listed in the second Rejection Notice e-mail. Because the system is automatically re-processing the applications, those without errors are being successfully validated, hence the applicant receiving the third Validation Receipt e-mail.

The applications that are re-processed and successfully received into the system are being forwarded to the agencies for retrieval. If the above occurs with your application, we are asking that you engage the Contact Center, secure a case number, follow-up to ensure your application has been received.

The cause of this issue is undetermined at the moment. We are currently researching this issue. We will provide you with more information once we determine the root cause.
