I applied for my US crossings under FOIA Jan. 15th. It updated on Feb 21st to show evaluation and at some point went to Assignment. It shows estimated completion of March 21st, but no updates and still not assigned. I've tried calling (left voicemail) and emailing with no response. Anyone else apply around the same time?

I have a friend with incomplete application, and can not continue with his request.
Can he contact you and get some help?

I mentioned 5$ , because it didn't say how much to pay.. and it went through.. it did not ask for credit card details.. may be at processing stage they will ask for the payment.
