  • If there are any CBPO's that have had their 5 year Background Investigation that are on this forum, can you please send me a private message. I have some questions I would like to ask. Thanks in advance

I don't live anywhere near the hiring center and have had to travel quite a ways just for my written exam and VBT. However, I have not made any attempts to contact an investigator. So far, everything has gone smoothly and fairly quick compared to some of the others I've seen on this site, so I have not had a reason to. The letter of unsuitability I recently received really took me back after all I've gone through to get this far.
      I received the same type of NOPA letter back in Nov. 2008. I replied within 30 days with a 3 page letter explaining how my employer closed down....I was laid off for a year.....blah blah blah.....and eventually went through a bankruptcy. I also contacted my lawyer and he was happy to send a letter backing up everything I stated. I overnighted everything via FedEx and required a signature at destination. I haven't heard anything directly about the NOPA but my qualifications have since cleared and I received a letter stating I will have to redo my fitness test in the near future.....hence...I take that as good news. Go for it ...write that letter!

        Thanks for this very helpful information. It sounds like your scenario is almost exactly the same as mine and things are working out for you, so I will feel a little better about staying positive.

          • I was arrested three times, DWI and two more times for driving with a suspended license. This all happened close to 10 years ago. I got an NOPA, obviously, and appealed since that all happened when I was a stupid teenager. I passed my background. Definitely write that letter. On a side note, I never got any confirmation that they received the letter I wrote or anything at all when I was found suitable. I checked CASS one day and the little green check mark was there.

              How long did it take them to clear you after you submitted your response?

              • I thought the hiring was supposed to pick up by now. When are they going to start spending that 2010 money? We know they got it. Anyone know if they have filled FLETC for October through December?
                When did this hiring drought start, last February or March?

                      You can thank the new administration for this. Just read the budget they put out for CBP.....things don't look good. Don't worry though, they got Chevy's back.

                        About two months after I got the notice is when it changed on CASS. The most frustrating part was that I never got any sort of response at allfrom the government. No phone call, letter or anything.

                          If you ask me, that is the best case scenario. Id much rather not be contacted at all and just clear one day. No news is good news!
