Telephone number +19152293228 is being used as part of an Advance Fee Fraud Scam by someone claiming to be from the "US Treasury Department" and using the email address treasuryny@organzation.org. The telephone number is included in the following Advance Fee Fraud email that is being sent to victims:
Attention: Fund Beneficiary,

Dear Sir

This is to confirmed the receipt of your mail and you are advised to
go ahead and contact the (Office of Foreign Asset Control, US Treasury
Department) for them to deliver and deposit the original copy of the
Pay-Cheque into your bank account in your country without any problem.

Below is their official contact details:
(Office Of Foreign Asset Control, US Treasury Department)
E-mail:( treasuryny@organzation.org )
Telephone: (+1-9152293228 )
Website// http:/ /www.ustreasurydepartment.3-a.net

Endeavor to keep me update as soon as you receive your funds from them.

Best Regards,
Hon. Barrister John Rapulu (Esq)

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.

The website is a free sub-domain, which is a sure fire indication of a scam. Legitimate businesses and Government departments do not host their websites on free sub-domains
