Not likely @DDM69 . It is the same issue with many other members with similar characters/digits.
Maybe ask your referrals to copy and paste your code to avoid problems, but just ensure they are not copying spaces or anything. Although that should not be allowed during activation anyhow.
@DDM69 if it was just a typo, jus open ticket with PM support amd they can likely able to help
