Default URGENT - ECFMG had verified credentials earlier and now says not verified ??? :(

Really need urgent help here. This is going to completely effect my chances of any Residency this year
In 2013, ECFMG had verifed my credentials and I had received an email from them " Please be advised that ECFMG has received direct verification of your medical education credentials from your medical school. Since you have also submitted all the medical education credentials required under current ECFMG policy, you now fulfill the current medical education credential requirements for ECFMG certification."

I completed all my Steps and was waiting for my ECFMG Certification when I get this email from them today
" Please be advised that while completing a final review of your file it has come to our attention that we are in need of a verification of your diploma from the University of Mumbai.
ECFMG medical education credential policy requires that ECFMG send a copy of the final medical diploma to the medical school for verification by the appropriate officials. Your credentials will not be considered complete until ECFMG receives verification of your medical diploma directly from the school.
ECFMG has been advised by that ECFMG must request verification of your medical diploma from the University of Mumbai.
The Controller of Examinations, University of Mumbai, has advised ECFMG that there is a fee for the verification of your medical diploma. The payment should be made in form of a demand draft in Indian currency and drawn in favor of The Finance & Accounts Officer, University of Mumbai. Please contact the university to determine the amount of the fee and to arrange payment. Kindly submit a copy of your payment receipt to ECFMG."



THIS IS RIDICULOUS ! They tell me all is verified in 2013 and NOW they tell me its not verified yet ?

Has anyone experienced this ??

It will take an entire month for this process . They want to mail my diploma back to India and want it to be mailed back to them by the University. Earlier this process was already completed by my Medical school and ECFMG confirmed that everything is verified .
Can someone please tell me what I can do ? I am so upset !!!
