Telephone number +229542512560 is being used as part of an Advance Fee Fraud Scam by someone claiming to be "Patricia Mahoney", U.S Ambassador to Benin and using the email address am_patricia_mahoney@yahoo.com. The telephone number is included in the following Advance Fee Fraud email that is being sent to victims:
Hello Dear,

Ambassador Patricia Mahoney.
U.S Ambassador to Benin.
+229 542512560
The email was sent from the email address "Ambassador Patricia Mahoney <sandra.ruda@gidalo.it>", with the Reply-to address "am_patricia_mahoney@yahoo.com" and the subject "SCAM VICTIM COMPENSATION $850,000.00".

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.
