1st Scenario:

Card Number has an incorrect prefix. Usually, these incorrect prefixes starts with USA* which is not acceptable/valid.

The DateOfBirth of the candidate is less than 1989-08-31. Therefore, the candidate does not have the most updated Card I551 with them, but these cards are still considered valid.

For SAP Product Support:
If their Card I551 are like this photo below, these are one of the old card numbers but these are still considered valid. Please see internal memo.
