No they said pay 5dollars and you can get and answer I think this is scam then
Expert:  Ely replied 6 months ago.
The site offers a phone chat at a premium, not me. It is automatic. If you request it, then another expert would call you (I opt out of calls).
The $5 is the down payment. The cost for this conversation currently is $38 from what I can tell (experts have limited access to billing - we simply answer the questions).
I had already typed out your answer but if you think that this is a scam, there is no need to continue the conversation. You can contact customer service at - they are very friendly - and should you wish to continue, let me know.
