Telephone number +12162362497 is being used as part of an Advance Fee Fraud Scam by someone claiming to be "Brain Moynihan", Chairman and CEO of Bank of America and using the email address mrbrainmoynihan8@gmail.com. The telephone number is included in the following Advance Fee Fraud email that is being sent to victims:
Dear Esteemed Customer,

The Management of the Bank of America Corporate Office Headquarters
here in 100 N.Tryon St Charlotte, NC 28255 wishes to inform you that
after a brief meeting held by the Bank executives yesterday, the 2nd
day of February 20th ,2020 at precisely 8 a.m. Eastern Daylight
Time(EDT), we seem it appropriate to intimate you that your funds will
be transferred into the United States Treasury Account with the JP
Morgan Chase Headquarters at 270 Park Avenue in New York according to
the record we got from Africa due to your inability to complete the
transaction and your failure to meet up with a minor payment
obligation. The actual transfer of your funds($4,500,000.00) into the
government account comes up next week.

This is in line with the instructions of the USA Treasurer, that all
unclaimed funds be paid into the United States Government Treasury
Account as um-serviceable funds in compliance to section 3 subsection
1(a) of the United States Financial Law enacted in 2001 after an
attack on our dear country on September 11,2001.

Find below the profile of the banking institution where your funds
will be transferred into following the government directive:

JP Morgan Chase Headquarters at 270 Park Avenue in New York. JP
Morgan Chase Official Bankers for the United States Treasury Department
AC NO: 68302345093
Routing NO:021109593
Account Name: United States Treasury Department, USA

Note that if you still wish to receive your funds, due get back to us
immediately so that we will remove your funds transfer from the list
of those transactions to be seized by the United States Government.
Also be informed that we need only a DIPLOMATIC IMMUNITY SEAL OF
TRANSFER (DIST) to complete the wire transfer.The cost getting
DIPLOMATIC IMMUNITY SEAL OF TRANSFER (DIST) is $500 usd.

You are required to send the fee of $500 usd through WALMART OR MONEY
GRAM MONEY to the issuing officer as stated below:

Receiver's Name....
Country ......USA
City ......Media, PA
Amount......$500 USD
Sender's Name:.........
REFERENCE Number.......

We will transfer your funds ($4,500,000.00) before we close office and
the funds will reflect 3hours after the transfer. We will send you all
the transfer documents to enable you start making cash withdrawals
from your account same day the funds IS transferred. We have waited
for so long and we cannot continue to wait.

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to serve your banking needs.
Yours faithfully,
Mr.Brain Moynihan
Chairman and CEO of Bank of America
(216) 236-2497
The email was sent from the email address "Chairman and CEO of Bank of America <officialfile31@gmail.com>", with the Reply-to address "mrbrainmoynihan8@gmail.com" and the subject "Management of the Bank of America Corporate".

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.
