Hi
I supply agricultural equipment to my clients in Africa. I have a lot of enquiries from Togo and one forged cheque for an order that was to be airfreighted "urgently". There is a scam running in Nigeria where you are asked to quote for a large amount of equipment for a short notice delivery. Then you are told you must register with the import board which costs $2,000. This is nonsense and I would suspect your enquiry from Togo is trying a similar thing with you.
