Telephone number +15167371525 is being used as part of an Advance Fee Fraud Scam by someone claiming to be "Rodriguez Mejia" and using the email address uscustom316@gmail.com. The telephone number is included in the following Advance Fee Fraud email that is being sent to victims:
Attention

We write to inform you that we arrested one Diplomat named Steven Eric
who claimed that the package consignment worth $5.5 Million usd cash belong
to you and he is conveying the package fund to you before we intercept it.

The package fund have been here for almost two months now and the diplomatic
agent is know where to be found because we ask him to pay for security keeping
fee and we are yet to see him, we decide to contact you and inform you about
the package to send $25 fee and your fund package will be release and deliver
to you within 24 hours.

We purposely reduce the fee to $25.00 because we find out that this package
fund have been delayed so much and we agree that if you pay $25 the package
fund will be release and delivered to you with immediate effect. We urge you
to try and send the $25.00 usd today to avoid further delay of your fund
package here and we assure you that within 24 hours we confirm the $25.00 usd
from you the package fund will be deliver to your home.

Endeavor to send your complete details in your response to this mail as follows

Waiting for your immediate response to this effect , Contact email
{ uscustom316@gmail.com } or call (516) 737-1525 .

Rodriguez Mejia
Field Director
U.S. Customs and Border Protection
Atlanta-Georgia, United States.
The email was sent from the email address "Field Director <mrtonyjohnson15@gmail.com>", with the Reply-to address "uscustom316@gmail.com" and the subject "U.S. Customs and Border Protection".

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.
