Someone calls for your number. It isn't necessary. Look at what this "John Chen" said. It's a big operation. It recruits anonymously via email (internet) yet the unnamed head will call you up to selectively allow you into this inner group of magazine subscribers. Haven't you already been solicited by non-covert magazine sellers? Sorry I haven't posted a warning sooner. I haven't had the time and have simply assumed that this would be an obvious lead-in to a more serious scam, credit card fraud. Watch out for the phone angle. I've been deleting 9 out of 10 posts. How can busy "John Chen" pull this off then spend time writing multiple pages. Ciao! I've blown my time limit as it is!!!
