– PSG is there for anything from figuring out a confusing rice cooker to serious culture shock and more serious emergencies.
– You’ll need to add the “AJETPSG” to your contacts in order to call it, but PSG will never add you back.
– All calls are completely confidential, and call records are deleted each evening.
– This is still a new service, and despite our best efforts technical glitches may occur. It may take a few moments to connect, and please keep trying if you’re unsuccessful.
– Finally, if you’d like a greater level of anonymity, or Skype isn’t working for you, the PSG phone line is still available at 050-5534-5566.
