Does it make sense
Did he receive the actual Card ? that is where the meat is. Not to discourage your friend, email is often unreliable. For example, I got an email on Jan 26 that my EAD is approved and CPO. No EAD till end of Feb. Then got another email on Feb 28 with same info --- EAD approved and CPO. This time it was apparently true ! Got the EAD in a few days.
