Actually the problem was that when I tried with another dev account I got the message that this user could not be found. After creating an app in the new Sandbox account it said something along the lines that a new sandbox account was created and it found my user.
Additionally, it kept saying this user was not verified and I had to manually reset my password for the user to be considered verified.
