Is Intercontinental Trust Bank Website at Fraudulent?

The website,, which calls itself "Intercontinental Trust Bank," and claims it is Africa’s global bank, appears to be untrustworthy. The email below was sent to me from the same website, claiming that they have received information regarding a check of $1,000,000 issued in my name. But, I am not aware of such money being given to me by anyone or an organization, so I know some online scammers are attempting to scam me.

It appears the scammers' initial aim to phish or trick recipients into sending them their personal and other sensitive information. Once they have received the information, they will attempt to trick their potential victims into sending them money, which they will claim is for some deposit fee, processing fee, taxes or some other miscellaneous fees.
