Question Requesting another ECFMG ID again; Irregular Behavior?

Hi...I wanna ask something

I filled the ECFMG ON-LINE AUTHENTICATION PROCESS and received an e-mail with the identification number but DIDN'T APPLY FOR ANYTHING yet neither certification nor an exam

Later I found out that I entered something wrong in the authentication form so I filled another form using another e-mail after choosing "No, I have never submitted an application to ECFMG for any examination" as I haven't really applied before even for the certification...I didn't receive a new identification number yet coz that was only yesterday

So my questions are:
Is what I've done considered IRREGULAR BEHAVIOR?
How will I know if they consider it so?
If I receive a new identification number on the other e-mail, will that mean everything is ok?

Thanks

You used a different email, but did you use the same first and last name?

I moved my third name from the "surname" field to the "rest of name" field leaving the fourth name alone in the "surname" field

if my name is A B C D
first i put "A B" in the rest of name and "C D" in the surname
the second time i put "A B C" in the rest of name and "D" in the surname

I think there is a good chance that they'll figure out that you applied twice.

Yes. They are very particular about this and they'll consider it irregular behavior if they recognize it.

I advise you to play it safe. Call the ECFMG and tell them that you did not know that it's "inappropriate" to apply for the ECFMG ID twice. Ask them to please cancel one of the IDs and to stick to only one of them.

There's a chance you might get away with this but why take the risk, call them and clean things up.
