How does FCVS/ FSMB verify IMG's credentials does it involve then contacting our medical school or they just verify things with ECFMG only?

Both

FYI: they're very expensive and I've heard horror stories. None the less, I did it since my medical school Is extremely hard to get ahold of and they're on paper records.

They also charge you additional money beyond the 350$ for their "service," just to "petition ECFMG" to send your scores. Have ALL your scores ready otherwise I believe they'll hit you each time with like a 75$ to update your scores or whatever BS.

They do BOTH. They obtain some information from the ECFMG. However, they verify medical education credentials AGAIN, by contacting your medical school (primary source verification).
