On 20th November 2018, telephone number +229995576491 was reported as being used by scammers to pretend to be Nicholas Matti using email address 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.
