But now My sister use to help me look after her but she got a job in New York so that why i need a nanny and I am scared of hiring local nannies because things are happening recently here in USA people acting weird so i was advised to get a foreign nanny because they are very humble, honest and trustworthy and I must say that I am very glad to read back from you.

An sorry the great aupair needs to confirm payment from you and without this your visa won't be approved and you won't be able to work here. Just let me know how much you can afford at the moment and I will be responsible for the rest of the payment if you serious about working here .

Am sorry i cant work protocols.. I work with the CIA and this like that are not allowed here if you know you don't believe me  we can just stop the conversation now because i wont want to loose my money for your visa and later you never come again 
So are you ready to make the payment

 How you doing today .. I received a notification from the Great Au Pair informing me that the shipment have been hold and there are charges required to be paid. Let me know what going to happen before the return the document back to USA. I wait to hear back from you soon

Am also worried about this and this is what they sent me when i asked them ?

They don't know what is in the parcel as it is sealed. It's just part of the Customs and Border Protection (CBP), the money is to be paid for the release of the parcel and delivery to your home address. Delays in payment of these charges may warrant them to ask us to send back to the United States.
