It appears your payment failed anyway, so no phone call was set up. Would you like me to send you another offer?
Expert:  Expert James replied 2 years ago.
Since it appears you are no longer interested in the Additional Services phone call, how would you like to proceed? Would you prefer that we continue the conversation here, through this Q&A?
