These institutions are attempting to use other peoples funds to create guarantees, placing all risk on our lenders. You should be careful of any and all "proof of funds" deals.   
Usually after a copy of the instrument was obtained and verified with the bank's officials, a proof of funds will be done on a bank-to-bank basis.  
At the right time, the guarantor bank will be provided with the full swift and KTT coordinates and there will be a mutual secure confirmation of the funds and the guarantee. After the signing of the contract to fund by the borrower,     this process will be repeated when the funds are transferred to the borrower's account, and the guarantee is transferred to the lending bank's account.
