Telephone number +22990229891 is being used as part of an Advance Fee Fraud Scam by someone claiming to be "Dr. John Mike", Director of Atm Dept at HSBC Bank Plc and using the email address atmbank94@gmail.com. The telephone number is included in the following Advance Fee Fraud email that is being sent to victims:
Dear Sir/Madam

This is Dr. John Mike , the Director of the Atm Department of the HSBC
Bank Plc. I wish to inform you that am on a trip since last year and I
just returned back to Benin Republic on Thursday 19th March 2020 after
some months trip to South Africa to control the affairs of our branch
over there since 2018.

I was suprised upon my arrival when I went through our pending
delivery files and found that your funds in the amount of
USD$1,500,000 (One Million, Five hundred thousand dollars) is among
the list of the undelivered files. I thought this delivery has been
perfected to your address in regards to the manual and financial
efforts of you and me in the past.

Then I went ahead and made a consultation with Mr Samuel Steve
concerning the funds and we then converted the funds into an Atm Debit
Card so that it will be easier for you to get the funds and withdraw
the funds in any atm center , Bank or Store where you will be
withdrawing $10,000 per day.

This payment notification was also approved by the World Bank and the
International Monetary Funds and you are advice to provide to us the
following details so that we will commence with the delivery of the
Atm Debit Card .

Here are the requested informations.

Your full name
Home Address
Telephone number
Passport copy

Feel Free to contact me on +229 90 229 891 or @ (atmbank94@gmail.com)

I anticipate your response.

Yours sincerely,
Dr. John Mike
Director Of Atm Dept
HSBC Bank Plc
The email was sent from the email address ""Dr. John Mike" <johnobi527@gmail.com>", with the Reply-to address "atmbank94@gmail.com" and the subject "Issuance of Your Upgr­aded ATM Debit Card Nos; ­5416557102001951 & 549035­3979870762.".

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.
