Got an e-mail this morning saying my bank info was wrong. I could go back and fix it, but if I don't by March 13, they'll send me a check.
I wasn't sure I put the right routing number on there the first time. I might have used the "wire" number instead of the other one, so I just resubmitted. They cleared my original info, so I couldn't tell.
At least we have checks as a backup plan.

I was one of the people that had the banking error. I saw the new press release on the FTPclaims site and can someone clarify for me, whether people that had to resubmit their information with banking errors will be in the first or second round of payments?
Below is what's on the website As part of the normal bank account testing conducted prior to issuing ACH payments (as further described below), GCG has identified certain Petitioners who are approved for payment but who submitted account information that was either incomplete or incorrect. On February 21, 2014, GCG sent emails to all such Petitioners with instructions as to how to update their bank account information through the online filing site. Please note that if we do not receive updated, complete and accurate information by March 13, 2014, a check will be sent to the mailing address provided with the Petition. Petitioners contacted by GCG in connection with their bank account information will receive payment in the second round of payments. If any such Petitioners have questions about this process, please contact GCG.
Edit: It seems to be the second round of payments. When will that be?
The purpose of this email is to inform you that your Petition for Remission has been approved and you are entitled to receive a distribution from the assets forfeited in connection with United States v.

Good information. Seems a bit crazy that they won't come straight out and say "no 1099s". I'd guess something like 99% of them would be wrong and it just doesn't seem to be appropriate to do such a thing. Could the PPA be involved in making sure this is handled properly? It would be a reasonably significant obstacle to make honest taxpayers suddenly have to contest a wrongfully submitted 1099.
