This is interesting...your case and my case seem to be in the same situation...i have filed in July 03 and found out recently that my name check was initiated in Feb 05...do you know why yours was initiated so late?
I know that my case had been screwed by them so they started the name check in Feb instead of 1 1/2 years ago....also when you faxed your FOIPA request to FBI did you put in a return fax # and did they send it to you on that fax #?
Pls let me know asap as I am going to do my FBI FOIPA today..
I have no idea why my name check was initiated so late. Also you don't have to worry about return fax as they reply via regular mail. The FOIPA response came within a week in my case. Go ahead and fax the request.
All the Best !
let us all know if they clear your name check within 120 days... I could be in the same situation... name check is most probably initiated after my FP someday in March 2005.... still waiting for that to be cleared.
I send a few emails to FBI in NOV, DEC and JAN... no answers so far... FIOPA came back in mid may with no records...
