    I Called the guy can he was so profession al, he explained all the TC and the reason why you must pay the charges. I told him don't worry about the Courier Cost I'll pick the cheque up at there offices. He Gave me the address Parliament Street, Block 206 5th Floor, Rica Building. I told him to give me a building name because there is no Rica Building in Parliament Street, He told me not to worry he will pick me up in Parliament Street, I must give him a call when I'm there. I told don't worry I fear for my safety and he put the phone down.. People don't fall for this, this people is our to rob, steal and kill!!!! WARNING BE CAREFULL
