Hi. My name's lane. I can help you with this.

...

Yes, we are seeing a HUGE number of people that are saying that they can't get the account set up ... Folks here ast my firm believe it has to do with the VERY picky way the system compares things like spaces in the address, middle initial, a phnoe number (if entered) that someon else aslo entered,etc.

A real issue today.

However you do have some other options
