On 23rd October 2018, telephone number +22966185616 was reported as being used by scammers to pretend to be Tony Johnson Shedrack using email address revtonyy@gmail.com as part of an Advance Fee Fraud Scam.

In Advance Fee Fraud Scams, the scammer will offer you something of high value (a large sum of money or gold for example) and all you have to do is pay a "small" fee.
