This wiki page will answer all your questions:
tl;dr You can just hand the agent that "paperwork", or let them read it,
which should give them all the details they need to know: that the node
they are looking for isn't at 2169 Mission St. and the name & numbers for
the technical contacts. :)
It also isn't as serious as it sounds; they usually can't do much about
traffic going through the exit node.
