Telephone number +12028880568 is being used as part of an Advance Fee Fraud Scam by someone claiming to be "Michael Kingsley" and using the email address imfeucompensation@gmail.com. The telephone number is included in the following Advance Fee Fraud email that is being sent to victims:
ATTN: [Redacted],

This is to inform you that the International Monetary Fund (IMF) Europe Office Recovery Unit Recovered the Total sum of US$6,800,000.00 (Six million Eight hundred thousand United States Dollar) with some Documents in your name.

The fund was traced and recovered from Banque Regionale de Solidarite (BRS) Togo and brought to the (IMF) office. We would like to know if you are expecting to receive a Fund delivery to the tune of US$6,800,000.00 (Six million Eight hundred thousand United States Dollar) that you have not yet received?. Please send us the information below for confirmations:

FULL NAME:
HOUSE ADDRESS:
MOBILE NUMBER:
OCCUPATION:

Please do not pay any money to anyone regarding this fund as it is already in the Custody of the IMF.

Any fees paid to any unscrupulous individual or Organization other than the IMF with regards to the Fund without verification from us will amount to a total loss. Only the IMF can see to the completion of this delivery or transfer to your provided Bank account or house Address. We anticipate your urgent response.

REGARDS,

Gen. Michael Kingsley
+1 (202) 888-0568
The email was sent from the email address "IMF INFO <imfeucompensation@gmail.com>".

The email is a classic example of an Advance Fee Fraud Scam with promises of a large sum of money being transferred to the victim. Anyone responding to it will be told that there is a fee/tax/insurance payment to be paid to receive the money. This will be followed by payment after payment until the victim runs out of money or realises that they are being scammed.
