Telephone number +12199900213 is being used on a fake domain pinnock-fin.com, which claims to belong to a company called "Pinnock Financials". The website gives the following contact details:
The WhoIs record for the domain gives the following information.
Creation Date: 2019-03-12T14:35:34Z
Registrar Registration Expiration Date: 2020-03-12T14:35:34Z
Registrar: Web4Africa Inc.

Registrant Name: Domain Admin
Registrant Organization: Privacy Protect, LLC (PrivacyProtect.org)
The WhoIs details raise a number of red flags that indicate that the domain is fraudulent. Firstly, the domain is less than a year old, yet the company claim to have been in business for far longer than that. Secondly, the domain was registered using Privacy Protection to hide the registrant's details. There is no need for a business to do something like that. Finally, the domain was registered with the Registrar "Web4Africa Inc." and there is no valid reason for a company in the US to register their domain using an African Registrar company.
