is there a phone number I can cll and talk with you? why do I NEED TO PAY MORE WHEN YOU HAVE not been any help yet?
Military Lawyer: Phillips Esq., Attorney-at-Law replied 6 months ago

If you have billing questions, you need to direct them to customer service. I do not handle billing for the site. I am just a site user like you. However, if you have received a phone call offer, kindly disregard the offer. I did not make it. The offer was made automatically by the site. Also, I do not participate in the phone call program.

Kindly respond to my information request so that I can try to assist you. I cannot assist you when I do not understand your post.

Thank you for your cooperation.
