Unique Personal Identification Number
I received an email from a customer who was "delayed" on a NICS check. She was approved the following day, but followed through to find out why she was delayed. She was issued a UPIN. Here is our correspondence:
I finally got my UPIN for the NICS from the FBI. It is the first one issued in NJ according to the NJ State Police. Or, at least, yesterday is the first time they've encountered one to use for a check!
It worked - got an instant approval (after an hour of teaching everyone WHAT it was and how it works!) State Police told the gun dealer to "just ask for a supervisor" if he ever uses a UPIN again. I'm FAMOUS! <g> Call the newspapers and tell them that the first resident of NJ to get an FBI UPIN is a little old lady!!
Thanks for the advice and the forms!
Still enjoying the Eagle....
|Congratulations!!! May I share this info to others? Of course, you shall remain anonymous.|
Anyone else receive a UPIN?
|Certainly you may share the story. I'm sure I'm not the only one who faced a "pending" every time for no good reason.|
Fortunately, I did find out why I got the pending (my driving license number is one digit away from a wanted criminal) which helped me send the correct "additional information" to the feds.
I submitted a notarized copy of the DMV printout of my clean driving record, a copy of my driving license AND a full explanation of my situation.
Next time I see you I'll show you the approval letter. That's all I got! There is no ID card. The letter tells me to keep a copy with me.
