Mail ECFMG asking me to fax the Diploma!

I am a medical graduate I already took step1 during my medical school
Now I am applying to step 2 ck so I sent to ECFMG 187 345 344 my medical diploma and a photograph, I sent them by DHL and according to DHL they reached ECFMG in 27 December and this is the track number 7446266030

but I didn't get any email from ECFMG and every time i call them they said to wait, finally i sent email to them and that is the answer

Please be advised that although ECFMG received your Certification of Identification form (Form 186) on December 28, 2011, the processing of your USMLE Step 2 CK application cannot be completed because you completed the application as a graduate but ECFMG has not yet received copies of your final medical school diploma.

You may fax the diploma copies to my attention, Nancy, at (215) 386-9196 , so that I may confirm their receipt to you and forward them for processing. Please be certain to include your USMLE/ECFMG identification number on all documents submitted to ECFMG.

I think you forgot to send 2 copies of translation of your medical diploma along with 2 copies of the originals. In any case, fax them whatever you did not send. it speeds up the processing time by a lot!
