They are still looking for one passport and am guessing it is yours. I just got a call from Embassy of India inquiring if I have received another passport in error. Hope they will find it. Those idiots are calling the home numbers, they should really be calling mobile numbers.
That is one of the worst case scenario for whom ever that PP belongs to. If/when the correct owner gets back his/her PP, there will be a doubt always (for the owner) if the person who got it by mistake has all the personal info of the correct owner.
Gee that may or may not be yours. Your case seems to be singularly unique, since, unlike tsb, you have never been able to get in contact with a live person@WDC (either by mail or phone). Atleast in tsb's case he/she was able to get 3 different answers. Isn't it time for you to
go there personally? May be you can go there to request for an appointment with Mr. Ranjan/Chhabra/Arun Singh or some one like that?? May be you can tell them that you are looking for a letter from the embassy stating that they lost your US PP's, so that you can re-apply for new US PP's? Also, add
it in there that you have urgent travel requirement.
I know it might be too much on my part to suggest you to go there from NC......but then I hate to see your case hanging in the limbo like that. Patience is a virtue....and you seem to have a lots of it.
Anyways, I gave my 2cents. Pls. act according to your needs.
I checked all my PP's during lunch today. Everything looks ok. All the names are spelt ok and the PP#s line up ok....so, I guess I am all set unless they bowl the ultimate googly/bouncer/yorker/short-pitch/bodyline.....whatever
