Listening regarding revised scheduling permit

Few days ago, I received my step 2 CK scheduling permit and I took the appointment at prometric centre.....
Today I got an email from ECFMG that my revised step 2 CK scheduling permit is available....I opened the permit and found it exactly the same like previous one......
Quote:
Your REVISED STEP 2 CK SCHEDULING PERMIT IS NOW AVAILABLE on the ECFMG Interactive Web Applications (IWA) website. Discard any previously printed permits for this exam.

YOU MUST PRINT YOUR REVISED SCHEDULING PERMIT AND BRING IT WITH YOU TO THE TEST CENTER ON YOUR SCHEDULED DATE. You will not be able to take the test if you do not bring your revised Scheduling Permit to the test center.

To access your Scheduling Permit, go to IWA at https://iwa2.ecfmg.org, login, and select "Print/Reprint your USMLE Step 2 CK Scheduling Permit." Your permit will open in a new browser window. Use your browser's "Print" function to print the permit.

Important Note for Examinees who

- cancelled a testing appointment 30 or fewer days before their scheduled test date, or
- were turned away by the Prometric Test Center on their scheduled test date, or
- did not appear on their scheduled test date.

If you fall into one of these three categories and have not already called Prometric to pay an appointment change fee, your updated eligibility record failed to load into Prometric's system. You will not be able to schedule a testing appointment until you call Prometric, as directed on your scheduling permit, and pay a fee to reinstate your eligibility record. After you have paid the appointment change fee, you must e-mail NBME at USMLEReg@nbme.org to notify the NBME that you have paid the appointment change fee. In your e-mail to NBME, you must

- type "Resend Eligibility" in the subject line, and
- type in the e-mail text that you have paid the appointment fee to Prometric. Include your full name, USMLE ID Number, examination type (Step 1 and/or Step 2 CK) and Testing Region in the e-mail text.

After receipt of the e-mail from you, the NBME will send your updated information to Prometric and respond to you within two business days. After you receive NBME's response, you can then contact Prometric to reschedule your testing appointment. Please do not telephone the NBME.
Also I don't fall into any of the three categories they have mentioned....So what should I do ????Take a new appointment or rely on the previously taken appointment....????

They might have changed your CIN# on the scheduling permit.

Use the new permit to schedule a new appointment at Prometric website.
