Yes they are, I've spoken to them 3 times since Friday. When you hear that message with the websites you need to hang up and call again. Sometimes it takes a lot of tries (last time it took me 18 attempts) before you get the message that allows you to get into the hold queue.

I am not a lawyer and nothing I say is or should be taken as legal advice.

What I learned is that u have to call them as soon as they open. But be ready to stay on hold for 45 50 minutes... but if u try calling later during the day u want get through... just wake up extra early to call them..
