    I am highly dissatisfied with LTD Commodities service and reliability. I have always been a very loyal and happy customer. However, the service or lack of service, should I say has been less than acceptable. The last 2 orders that I placed sat in processing/pending for months, never received and no-one would contact me regarding my issues after contacting several times and several ways. Both orders ended up disappearing from my account without any contact or consideration to me to advise that these orders were going to be deleted. Very disappointed, would not recommend doing business with this company.
