I don't think your scores are valid anymore. Step scores are valid for I think seven years from the date you took your Step 1. You'd have to retake all of your steps I imagine. Can someone correct me if I'm wrong?

if he/she already received ECFMG certificate I guess it's valid?

you can try boosting your resume with publications.

What have you been doing for the past 12 years?

your scores are valid as long as you passed ALL steps (including step3) within 7 years.
The match is very competitive, but you should go ahead and try!
All the best!
