Telephone number +14095711174 is being used as part of an Advance Fee Fraud Scam by someone claiming to be "Debra Miller" and using the email address notification.wubonus@gmail.com. The telephone number in included in the following Advance Fee Fraud email that is being sent to victims:
Western Union
Money Transfer Service
Duane Reade, 4 Columbus Cir FRNT C, New York, NY 10019, United, USA
+1409 571 1174
Open until 9:00 PM

This email is reaching you today being the 8th of Feb. 2020 from the
Western Union Agent Columbus, New York in conjuction with
United Nation Compensation Award Committee and I as the Director of
Western Union Agent here in Columbus, New York i wishes to inform you
know
that due to some fake ID and website from the internet hoax and
hackers in Africa especial in Nigerian, Ghana, Benin and Burkina
Faso we have agreed with the Federal Ministry of Finance and the
United Nation Compensation Award Committee in this State
to transfer your Funds from one so called Western Union Agent under
management of Central Bank of Africa (CBA) over there in Benin
to My Western Union Head Office here in Columbus, New York so that it
will be easy for you to receive your approved Compensation Funds
without any fee as some of the Bank over there in Africa formed the
habit of demanding unnecessary fees from the customers and at last
they mighty not complete the Transfer for one reason or the other due
to poor Management.

As matter of fact, according to the the United Nation Compensation
Award Committee, the main reason they channel this payment in this way
is that they noticed that you have sent a lot of funds to Africa there
by Western Union and Money Gram with hope that you will receive your
funds and at last you will receive nothing rather than keep receiving
unfulfilled promise from them, NOW as Director of Western Union here I
hereby assure you that this is time for you to get your
Re-compensation approved and signed Funds from the office here so for
immidiate payment of your fund from this hour kindly provide me with
your personal information such as in bellow form

Full Name you want me to be sending your funds
First Name........
Middle Name........
Last Name.........
Address...........
Zip Code.........

Note that the total money diverted to my Office here is $26,850 and i
will be sending to you $2,250 twice daily making it $4,500 perday

Best Regard
Mrs.Debra Miller

The email was sent from the email address "Western Union Inc <ije9116@gmail.com>", with the Reply-to address "notification.wubonus@gmail.com" and the subject "Contact Mrs Debra Miller at +1409 571 1174 for your $26,850".

The email raises a number of red flags that indicate that this is a scam. Firstly, Presidents, Prime Ministers etc of countries do not randomly write to people advising them that they are entitled to large sums of money. Secondly, the email was sent to multiple recipients using BCC. Thirdly, the email was sent from a totally different address than you are asked to reply to. Scammers do this to avoid losing victims if the original address is shut down for spamming. This is a classic example of an Advance Fee Fraud Scam and 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.
