Those are all fake
To begin with, there is NO such law firm in Benin as Alfa Chambers -- the term Chambers is NEVER used in French speaking countries like Benin
Benin also has NO Federal court or High Court of Justice, nor do they use US$s in Benin. The High Court in Benin is called the Haut Conseil de la Magistrature
You NEVER enter into any sort of international agreements without getting your Embassy involved, Before you agree to any transactions, you call your Embassy in Benin (or in the country that oversees Benin) and speak to their Commercial section. Their job is to promote business between Indonesia and Benin. They have a team on the ground who willl not only investigate companies for you, but will also assist you with all export documents, procedures, registration, etc, etc.
The Indonesian Embassy in Nigeria oversees affairs in Benin http://www.indo.com/tplan/indonesian-embassies-p1....
so call them before you do any sort of business in Africa. Have them verify the legitimacy of any company before you enter into any sort of negotiations
And go back to the company in Benin saying that the Commercial Attache at the Indonesian Embassy in Nigeria will be coming to Benin next week to meet with them and review all of the paperwork. Say that the Embassy will be filling out all documentation on your behalf. Say that they should be expecting a call from the Embassy this week to arrange a meeting next week at their offices. Then wait for the excuses - if you ever hear from them again
