Same thing happened to me, I almost think they do it on purpose to slow you down. No worries though, call them and they will fix and re-mail them at no charge. Make sure you double check with them the spelling on the phone!

Yes, the number is (02) 6202 3333 available here: http://www.afp.gov.au/what-we-do/police-checks/national-police-checks.aspx

 

When you call, they will seem like it's completely normal that you had a typo - it's crazy! Sucks that you have to wait another 2-4 weeks to get it depending on where you live, but it's part of the process.

You could always submit the Police checks explaining to your CO what happened and that you are in the process of sorting it out. The worst that can happen is that they refuse them. You might be able to save a few weeks!
