Check Cashed!

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Checked my bank account and saw that the check was cashed today. Our original paperwork was received last week on the 15th and today I received a text message and an email stating that we would be getting a letter in the mail within 7-10 days. Hopefully everything is all in order. I guess this is the beginning of the waiting game...
