If you receive a phone call offer while we chat, know that this is an automated test feature the site is running. Due to possible ethical issues, the site allows experts not participate in phone calls and I normally decline them.

there may be a slight

Please be careful and terminate the conversation with any person purporting themselves to be a part of this matter.
