Hi
Thank you for your question, I will do my best to assist you.
This is an example of what is called an "Advance Fee scam" designed to part you from your money on the promise of a larger sum that does not exist
http://www.actionfraud.police.uk/fraud-az-advance-fee-fraud
So no this is not real at all
I can tell you that there is no such bank (despite any "web page" they may direct you to) and the biggest give away is that the number quoted is a mobile phone number
I hope that this is of assistance
Claire
