A: The USCIS made a mistake. You may want to call the 800 number to request an ADIT appointment at your local USCIS Field Office, but that can take a while. You may instead prefer to file form I-90 to ask for the correction, and send a copy of the card. However, it is unclear whether the lockbox will insist that you have to pay the filing fee. A no fee application may require filing by mail rather than online. You may wish to go online to the USCIS website at www.uscis.gov. Good luck.
