I have recently received an email from a stranger that says she wants to send me a big deal of money for some specific reason and she said that she has talked to the bank (Banque Atlantique Groupe Lome Togo) and she gave me a phone number and an email address so that I contact the bank and follow the procedure that is required for the money to be transferred to me. Now after I emailed the bank, they replied with this:
To enable us process and transfer the fund to the bank account you will be sending to us, the pdf attachment file contain copy of Identification/Transfer Processing Form E-27. Which you have to carefully fill and return to this bank with the required processing fee US$1,750.00 (One Thousand, Seven Hundred & Fifty United States Dollars).
Upon the receipt of the required fee, we shall appoint one of our bank accredited attorney to stand as your legal representative here since you are not here in person, so that he can help you to secure the transfer approval from the authorized ministry here before we shall process and transfer the fund to the bank account you will be submitting to this bank.
How can I make sure this is not a fraud and how can I be secure?
