Exposing Internet Fraud & Scams


Global Trust Bank PLC, Benin

Global Trust Bank was referenced in several unsolicited emails that we have received (which are set forth below and on the webpages listed below).  These emails appear to be fraudulent or bogus.   Global Trust 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 (e.g. phony governmental certificates, checks and passports) as scammers make a living forging these things.  Often scammers work in rings and have partners who may pose as lawyers, government officials, bank officials etc.  

If you get an e-mail that is similar to one in our collection, you should delete it.  Do not contact the person 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.   Also, do not accept a check from this stranger and especially do not return a portion of the check .  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.

Good Day friend,

I am MR.BENJAMIN KOMAH. Manager,Global Trust Bank,Cotonou Republic of Benin.Actually,i got your contact from a friend of mind who worked with United Nation Development Programmes office (UNDP) Regional office in your country years back, Although the details of my intention was not made known to him because of the nature of this transaction.

Actually, I know it will come to you as a surprise because we have not met either physically or through correspondence but that is not the case. Anyway i have a very urgent and confidential business proposition for you for our overall mutual interest. On December 23 2002,a canadian Oil Consultant and contractor,Mr.Jimmy made a numbered time (fixed) deposit for twelve Calendar months, valued at USD$12,536,000.00 (Twelve Million Five Hundred And THirty Six Thousand United States Dollars)in my Bank Branch here. Upon maturity, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply.After a month,we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his contract employers, Republic of Benin National Petroleum Corporation that (Mr.Jimmy was among the passengers in the ill fated plane crash that happened on December 23rd in Benin here. See below,

On further investigation i found out that he did not leave a WILL and all attempt to trace any of his relations in canada or his next of kin were fruitless as i was told that he left his country canada in the tender age and has lived all his life here without any wife or children. I therefore made further investigation and discovered that (Mr.Jimmy)did not declare any next of kin in all his official documents,including his bank deposit paperwork.

This sum of USD$12,536,000.00 is still floating in this Bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year as no one has come forward to lay claim on it. According to Republic of Benin Law, at the expiration of 6 (six) years,the money will revert to the ownership of the Government of Benin Republic if nobody applies to claim the funds. Consequently, my proposal is that i will like as a foreigner to front you as the next of kin of (Mr.Jimmy) so that the fruit of this old man labour will not get into the hands of some corrupt government officials. This is simple as the head affairs of this bank.

I will also like to inform you that there is no risk at all,Infact this transaction is 100% risk free and legal as all the paperwork for successfull completion of this transaction will be done by an lawyer whom we hired to prosecute this transaction and also act as your representative here and my position as the Manager in this bank guarantees the successfull execution of this transaction.

If you are interested, please reply immediately .Upon your response, I shall then provide you with more details and what will be required from you for the successfull completion of this transaction. Please observe utmost confidentiality of this transaction as you know that am still under this management and hoping to retire immediately this funds hits your account,and be rest assured that this transaction would be most profitable for both of us at the end of the day because I shall require your assistance to invest my share in your country or any other country you might advise me. I suggest you get back to me as soon as possible stating your wish in this transaction.On this Email Address:

God bless you. Yours faithfully, MR.BENJAMIN KOMAH. (The Manager.)
