I *think* this is the right forum section on here for this. Found this site while searching for info on this, thought I'd ask you guys before giving them a call...
I didn't think to write down the exact dates for this stuff as it didn't occur to me I'd need to, so the dates are fuzzy and I may have the wording wrong, but:
I applied for my FOID either late April or early May, and the status said (I think) "Active" as of early May, probably first week of May.
Was really hoping to get it before vacation (which has LONG since come and gone) but I'd read online that it can take a LONG time, so I waited until I think mid July before calling them to ask what was going on.
The woman I spoke with was perfectly nice, confirmed my address, and (if I'm remembering right) thought it got lost in the mail. I'm not having any issues with my mail service that I know of-I'm getting all my bills I should be getting at least. She said she'd reissue it, and the status would update after they sent it to the printers (I got the impression they send it to some company to print it, and it's out of their control at that point, but that's just an impression).
So a week or three go by, and the issue date changes from early May to early August...and I keep waiting. Decided I'd give it another two months before contacting them.
Logged in last week and it still had "Active" with that second issue date in August.
Log in yesterday and now it's saying my status is "revoked"?!?
I know she did say something about revoking or invalidating or something the first card, but it's been showing as active with the new date for over 2 months now.
Also I read on here that people back in 2016 were getting physical letters in the mail a week after their status went active that they were active and that their card would be arriving. I don't know if they're still mailing letters like that, but I never got one.
Anyone have any idea what could be going on? I read somewhere that if your card is revoked you legally have to turn it in or something. Well I never GOT either card, and I have no idea why it would be revoked (save that the first card was apparently invalidated, so maybe that means it was "revoked"...or maybe they "revoke" it if it gets sent back in the mail undelivered?).
What the heck do I do?
