Congratulations!  Regarding the fee, I believe they are requesting an
electronic transfer to the account number given to you.  You will have to
arrange for the transfer at your bank.  At least, that is the way payment
was requested for the last search I had done.  It is a quick way to send
money, but quite expensive.
