The Airport Authority demanded for all the legal back up papers to prove to them that the fund is no way related with drug nor fraud money, I have presented the papers I handed to them and they are very much pleased with the papers I presented but the only thing that is still keeping me here is the airport Anti drug/terrorist clearance certificate and Police Clearance Report which is not placed on the package,One of the Airport Authority has advise that we get the delivery tag from the fund origin so that I can exit the airport immediately and make my delivery successful . I try to reason with them and they stated the delivery tag will cost us just $80 Dollars only to get the two documents placed on the packages as that documents will enable me commence to your
home today.

Please try as much as you can to reach me on Phone below as I can not afford to spend much time here . You can direct the tag fee to me here in Washington as they will get it here for me and Email me with below information to enable me know your arrangement for the $80 Dollars and your should call me or send me SMS. here is my direct cell +1 (202) 886-1878
