Telephone number +2348068268955 is being used as part of an Advance Fee Fraud Scam by someone claiming to be "John Brown" and using the email address johnbrown.brown68@gmail.com. The telephone number is included in the following Advance Fee Fraud email that is being sent to victims:


I want to thank you for your response which is an indication of your
affirmation to work with me. But first and foremost I would like you
to understand that I am very serious with this proposal, I am not a
cheat and what I have assured is not a joke. Also, I love making
friends, and I would like us to see ourselves as friends so that we
can always relate even after I have assisted you with the retrieval of
this fund. My direct telephone number is +2348068268955, I would
appreciate it if we can often communicate through phone if you are
comfortable with that. In your next response I would like you to do
the following;

1.) Send me your direct contact telephone number and the best time to
call to speak with you, in GMT.

2.) Reconfirm your exact and complete banking co-ordinate. Please
note that the bank branch address is very key because what I am doing
for you is a server networking which must identify your bank’s direct
branch and push the encrypted swift direct into your provided bank
account and have it instantly decrypted and credited as cash fund.

In this my second mail to you I would briefly share the method which I
wish to apply in retrieving your claim fund. I wish I could do the
entire explaining to you but that would be too much for you to grab
because of the technicalities involved. For the purposes of clarity
and better understanding I would be very limited with my use of some
technical terminologies here. The prime objective is JUST TO PUT YOUR
FUND IN YOUR BANK ACCOUNT because result speaks volume.

Now know these;

1.) I want to retrieve your fund from the Nigeria’s corrupt and
difficult payment system using some highly sophisticated electronic
banking software which operates outsourced data processing centers
used by banks to move money electronically. These are
behind-the-scenes programs used for remote deposit, mobile payments,
wire transfer payments and sending messages over the international
SWIFT network.I am using softwares developed by Fund tech and

2.) This is a ‘’CLASSIFIED’’ payment arrangement, hence MUST be kept
very secret. To this end you do not tell anyone what I am doing for
you. It is safe, secure and GUARANTEED. But we must be both mature in
handling it’s confidentiality both now, during and after the

3.) You are not paying any claim processing fees or documentation
fees anymore because we are forcefully moving the funds out of the
payment system since this remains the ONLY option left for you. The
CBN is not willing to release this fund to you because there are so
many petitions and other interest groups that always impede the
remittance from taking place.

4.) The transfer tool I am using will only move funds will not allow
some figures. For instance, if your fund is $10,500,000, the system is
not programmed to accept the extra $500,000. It will only allow
remittance of $10,000,000. To avoid any issue, I will schedule a
one-time transfer of $10,000,000 on your official transaction’s
classification code of 05006110010001. As you know, this is more than
your approved claim value. Therefore, once the money hits your account
and you confirm it cleared and clean, you are to send me sufficient
air ticket money with an invitation to come over and meet you in your
country for my remunerations and some other face-to-face business

5.) Like I said before, I need to know your exact receiving bank
location to enable me schedule the routing of this fund. I would also
like you to logon to, https:/ /stripe.com and examine the platform very
well because I will be registering your details on the platform and
use it as a conduit to tunnel your fund as an added security
measure.Stripe platform authenticates the transaction and hide it from
prying eyes of any financial regulatory agency.

With the tools am using, the remittance will be simple and easy to
your amazement. I now await your next response with;

1.) Your direct telephone number.

2.) Your complete banking co-ordinate.

I wait for your email so that i will commence work immediately.

Best regards,

John Brown
The email was sent from the email address "john brown <johnbrown.brown68@gmail.com>", with the subject "Please do not ignore this vital information".

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.
