      usually a few days after the deadline they gave you unless they find other problems that you need to fix again ( has happened to me a few times)

      123456789 Start disputing everything, that's what I did & haven't paid a dime. I cleared about 4-5k in debt from collections in about 6 months. All that's left is a medical bill of $800 & a cable bill of the same price. I disputed the cable bill as well but they want me to go to my local police to file fraud & I'm not willing to do so. I also went & got a secured card through my bank which upped my credit score by over 40 points in the first month.

  • So not entirely CBP related but I just thought I share this.

    I looked at my mail and got a notice for jury duty...on the very first day of EOD/Pre Academy! Funny how things go sometimes.

    Also, does anyone happen to know any good resources where people are going into FLETC around the same time as you? Wouldn’t mind trying to get to know some people before I head out

      Dp23 same thing with me. $800 but electric. I moved out of my apartment in 2014 and electric company kept charging me. I told them electric was suppose to be disconnected. Told the investigator and he said that is fraud. They were running electricity under my name. They are still trying to collect.

      Hal29 Sorry for the late reply & I had one of them as well for $1200. I moved out in August but was still being billed to December. I actually set up a payment arrangement but first I asked they adjust the bill since I had moved out. About a week of back & forth between the leasing office, light place & over the phone with the collection agency they removed the entire balance from my credit after I emailed them copies of a new address during that timeframe. Try that & see if it works in your favor especially if you have another lease at a new address.

  • What phone number can I call to inquire about a polygraph date ? I know they call or email to schedule it, but I would like to reach out with hopes of speeding the process up.

      Hal29 yea I enjoy the cold but I’ve heard the cold in Vermont and Maine is a new level of frigid. I went to Alaska in November and -20 sucks! Hopefully those guys get some good cold weather gear.

      If my family was there, reapplying would be worth it. I know you’ve been in the process for a while now though so I can understand your reasoning 100%.

      if I wasn't this close to the end I would. But being this close I don't want to wait any longer or retake exam. Yeah it is cold up there but I love it. But I also love the west. Trying to get family to move out there..lol.

      Airports tend to be better organized, less dirty, have more amenities and be more predictable. Land borders tend to be more chaotic, more variations of work, possibly less well funded and more remote and rural. With seaports it really depends of whether they process cargo or passengers.

      Airport sounds like it would be a good fit. Unfortunately I don't think Swb offers airports and dfw will be out of the question as it is not part of the Swb. Sucks seeing I'm only 30 minutes out and they probably won't let me negotiate that as I'm dh.

      One, the "100 mile" rule is a BP thing.

      Two, it's a hiring rule. It forces new BP hires into stations that are at least 100 miles from the applicant's place of residence listed in their initial job application. It has nothing to do with where a person lives after being hired.

      No. The 100-mile rule is the address of your original residence. It has nothing to do with where you live once you get the job.

      Hal29 micdrop451 Nogales for CBPO & Ajo or Nogales for BP. I'm in Phoenix so both are over 100 miles but from my understanding the 100 mile rule is only for BP. I also thought about Lukeville but I heard it's desolate as hell out there so I'll stick with Nogales & hopefully move to Tucson or Sierra Vista.

    • Question? I was looking at different ports. I seen that the world trade port of entry in Laredo is not a 24 hour port. It runs from 8am-midnight. Is that a port you can select or is that a location that they have to appoint you to. I did not realize that there is more than 1 port in laredo.

        I think it’s something that is given to you by your port, they may be rotating bridges. Laredo has 3 bridges, 1 airport and I believe a train station area as well. And even if it closes at midnight, I believe there are always officers there, I report to Laredo on the 27th and I can let you know whatever I learn about the area.

        I know when I took the exam they said 4-6 weeks, but I think I got my results in 2 weeks or less. I can’t remeber when I took the exam it was on a Saturday in March, and I had my results by the 29th

        I'm the other way around I passed the CBP SI & failed the BP SI in May(reapplied 11/15). The six months goes fast & you can always transfer mostly everything back over to BP. Physical & SI are the other two things won't transfer.

    • On my application manager, it says that I'm Frontline hiring 18-8, but in my email it says 18-1. Just realized this and was wondering if this discrepency may cause problems? Also is there a difference between frontline hiring and direct hiring? Currently sitting in process at 50% CASS, don't have a timeline, but approximately 6 months now. Still missing poly, drug, bi, and fitness exam 2. (Also what is in the 2nd fitness exam?

      PSA: For all those who have their eQip rejected for what you feel is a dumb reason, go ahead and call the number, escalate to a claim to have a specialist look at it and approve it right away. (They have the same power as your investigator to push your eQip to the OPR). My eQip which took 4 months due to constant issues and changes on the investigators end, was completed within 3-4 days after I called.

        I was in this boat as you’re describing. Mines got kicked back multiple times. I had a convo with my case manager asking if the eqip was being checked entirely. I was told yes until it got kicked back for section 10 twice. After seeing this kickback for section 10 twice I was really annoyed, I called my eqip manager but was unable to have a verbal convo as usual but later found out that day that, that person was fired. My eqip finally got pushed through by my friend’s case manager who was also going through the process with me. My eqip initially started sometime in November of 2016 and got sent off to OPR either April or May of 2017.
