To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

I am looking for documents referencing The Silk Road anonymous marketplace, Ross Ulbricht, or Dread Pirate Roberts.

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Hello,

Thank you for responding to my FOIA request 15-00254-F.

In the attached response letter, the DEA FOIA office has classified me as a non-media requester for the purpose of fees, based on the allowance of 2 hours of search time and 100 pages of duplication at no charge. I hereby request that the DEA correct my status to media requester to reflect that I submitted the present request in my capacity as a journalist working on a story for publication.

Here are two examples of my recent work:

Please confirm that all appropriate documentation has been corrected to reflect my status as a media requester, and provide a revised fee estimate given this status.

Thank you for your help.
