Emails are automatically sent from our system within 60 seconds of

When trying to login and you receive a username not valid error means one of two things:

We screen all new registrations. If we find a registration with
missing or invalid contact info, we automatically delete the account. It

only is not valid contact info. The second major factor that results in
account deletion is entering an invalid phone number. A valid phone
number where you can be reached is required for all members.
