Eco Bank of  Lome, Togo

Eco Bank of Lome, Togo was referenced in unsolicited emails that we have received which appear to be fraudulent or bogus.   Eco Bank is almost certainly not involved nor likely to approve the use of its name in the e-mails.  Scammers often use the names of legitimate banks, companies, governmental agencies and other organizations to make their claims seem legitimate. This site contains a large collection of fraud and bogus emails that attempt to scam the recipient into sending money for non-existent fortunes, inheritances, cases of money, business partnerships, lottery winnings, etc.  Don't be fooled by official looking documents as scammers make a living forging these things.  If you get an e-mail that is similar to one in our collection, you should delete it.  Do not contact the sender (e.g. "Fabrice Michael") and especially do not give out personal information such as bank account information or your social security number.  NEVER pay any fees of any kind.   If you are victimized by the fraud, there is not much that you can do. You may want to visit other sites to learn more.

I got your email address from the international chamber of commerce guestbook, and I decided to contact you for a mutual and beneficial and a 100% risk free transaction. During our auditing and investigation in this bank, my department made a discouvery of the sum of $10.000.000 usd(TEN MILLION DOLLARS), belonging to a foreign international businessman who died in an auto crash here in Lome along with his family. Before our discouvery of this funds, there was no trace of claim from any person as the funds remain dormant in his account with this Bank. Since this funds falls entirely within my dept. I kept this information secret to enable me arrange for a trustworthy person who can claim and have this said amount transfered in his account at oversea. You will be presented to the Bank as the BONAFIDE NEXT- OF- KIN to the deceased. This transaction is a very profitable one and must ba handled with utmost confidentiality.

Meanwhile, all the arrangement to put up claims as the Bonafide next-of-kin to the deceased, in order to get the required approval and transfer of this funds to a foreing account has been put in place. The directives and all the needed papers are intact, This documents will be relayed to you as soon as you indicate your interest and willingness to benefit from this one in a life time opportunity. As a matter of fact, we could have carried out this deal alone, but being a staff of this bank, we are not legally allowed to operate forign accounts, it looks suspicious if we, as the staff of came forward to claim this money during the time of transfering of the funds.

These are the actual reasons why this operation requires a third party who will forward application of claims to the Bank and also present an account where the money on your request will be transfered into. On conclusion of this transaction, you will be entitled to 30% of the total money as gratification for pertaking in this transaction. 5% will go for every expenses incured during this transaction while 65% will be for me and my partners here. Please, you are adviced to keep this whole transaction secret as we are still in service and intend to retire from service after we conclude this deal with you.

I will be monitoring the whole situation from the Bank until you confirm the money in your account.

We will then come down to your Country for subsequent sharing of the fund according to the terms previously indicated. As our foreign partner, we would appreciate it if you could offer us useful investment advice in your country because we will like to invest our own share of the funds in your country.

All other necesary information will be sent to you when i hear from you. I suggest, you get back to me as sonn as possible, indicating your interest to conclude this deal.
