Note; I have paid for the delivering and charges for the delivery of the package, But they do not agree to receive the security keeping fee reason for their refusal is that they said, they do not know when you are going to contact them, as they said that their keeping fee is $25 per day that is why I do not pay for the keeping fee. And I registered it on Monday 6th September 2010 but could not get to you that day due to my server connection problem. So the only money you will pay them is their security keeping fee. and I want you to do fast and contact them today to avoid the increase of their keeping fee. And let me know once you receive your ATM VISA CARD,
