Tried to call "MY" A.C.O. Joseph Pierce... went to voice mail with no way to get addl info.. wanted my phone#, name etc. Felt Weird and Suspicious.

Tried "MY" shipping agent next, Seth Roberts.. he did answer and became very insist on my name and addr .."don't you want your money?" "I can't answer your questions but I can get your money to you." Put me on hold 3 times came back more hurried,aggressive & impatient, like I was 'letting' time waste to get this 'opportunity'. Lots of other voices in the background.. he did tell me I was calling CANADA! I hung up immediatly.

Only out long distance charges to another country. But this is SO WRONG!!!
