Change of case number, now I am confused

Hi everyone,

Having a little bit more time, I might be overthinking, just wanted to see if it's common or not.

I've applied for AOS and EAD from F1 to GC due to marriage with a receive notice on July 1. In less than a week I got NOA letters with three case numbers: MSC***89 for I485, MSC***90 for I130, MSC***91 for I765. All three notices generated updates to my wife's phone as texts/emails.

Later, I got biometrics appointment with the same case number MSC***89 and went to give my fingerprints on July 27. Up to this point things went as expected and fairly smooth.

Few days later, I get texts on my phone with case updates MSC***69 and MSC***91; I go check online and MSC***69 says "As of August 2, 2019, we completed our review of your fingerprints and are working on your Form I-485" and MSC***91 says "s of July 31, 2019, we are processing the fingerprints for your Form I-765". Here comes the ####### moment: How did my case number got lower by 20 (MSC***69 instead of MSC***89) and was the review of my fingerprints completed or not?!

Just in case, I checked MSC***89 and it says "As of July 31, 2019, we are processing the fingerprints for your Form I-485" which is consistent with MSC***91. Having paper NOA stating MSC***89 I start to think that it was some kind of mixup/typo, and case MSC***69 is someone else.

From what I see, fingerprint review normally goes pretty fast - some claim that FBI releases info within 24 hrs; has anyone else had their fingerprints reviewed for over 60 days?

I had an issue with this. After I went in for biometrics my status never changed, or so I thought. When I checked in the case file website it just showed Fingerprint Fee Received. Someone here suggested to check the https://myaccount.uscis.gov/  and over there it did update. So now status is Fingerprint Review Was Completed since October 1st (my biometrics were 09/30). You could try and do that if it hasn't updated in the case file website, check USCIS website and viceversa since it can happen both ways.

I was able to ask this through Emma's livechat.

Basically, the text message with updated case number was not associated with my application, seems like it was a mistake. The only valid case numbers are ones I received in paper NOAs.

My case's latest update is still processing the fingerprints (Since July 31) and no difference from old and new case status reports, thank you for suggestion though.
