We are currently in the process of doing our yearly client reviews. If you receive a call from Wanda Armstrong (515-661-8282) advising you that she is conducting GVSS reviews, this is a legitimate call. Please cooperate with Wanda and let her complete the questions with you. We appreciate your cooperation with this matter. Failure to complete the yearly review will result in all GVSS services being suspended until the yearly review is completed.
