APAC Transfer question

I'm hoping to speak to somebody about APAC transfers. I live in Asia and my characters have all been live since long before the transfers were announced, but I have never received an email regarding character transfers.

Now that transfers are available, it seems that my entire server (Jekk'Jekk Tar) is transferring - or at least the people who play in my timezone - and I'm going to be left behind doing... well... nothing, I guess.

I called the US Customer Service number and spoke to somebody who was sympathetic, but he was unable to help me get the transfers activated.

Do you have an email address or number I can call so I can speak with somebody who can help me? Feel free to PM the details if you prefer.

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
