New fiberglass door is off at top and bottom

I had started a new thread about the front door. Some one had said to see if the door it self was straight. Yes it is. Guess what is not straight. the part of the door frame that the lock goes into. How does that go bad. This part of the frame turns out on the top and bottom.It was no that way a few month ago. Any ideas what I did wrong??

PS: not able to copy pictures over to new email.

I installed new fiberglass FRONT DOOR about 4 months ago. The door close and the gap around the door was the same all around. It was square and door was level. I am now getting the door backing away from frame on the side were the lock is at top and bottom. After I put door in I could not see daylight any place around the door edges. Now I see daylight around top and bottom on the lock side. When I close door it closes very easy and says shut. I have enclosed a few pictures to shoe were the problems are. Any idea of what I did wrong.

Like I said last time you posted, contact the retailer where it was purchased. Whether it is the door, the sidelight, or the jamb in between, this is a mfg defect, so that is where you need to start.
