Telephone number +12402976630 is being used as part of an Advance Fee Fraud Scam by someone claiming to be "Jeffrey Hawkins" from IC3 Internet Crimes Compensation Center and using the email address ic3.iccc@usa.com. The telephone number in included in the following Advance Fee Fraud email that is being sent to victims:
Attention

I'm sorry this was the only way to reach you.

This notification is regarding your overdue payment that has been reviewed for payment.I tried getting in touch with you earlier to attend to this matter but all effort failed.

You need to stop contacting those fraudsters if you don't want to end up broke and frustrated.Why will they continue to deceive you in circles for unnecessary payment demands? Money does not grow on trees.

The ICCC is now in charge of your payment for security reasons, and i have been instructed to report ANYBODY attempting to divert your payment.

There is no more room for nonsense...anybody attempting to divert your payment this time will be prosecuted.

I strongly advise you get in contact with me immediately via Call now or Text below to put an end to this and get you paid physical cash not empty promises.

CFO. Jeffrey Hawkins
IC3 Internet Crimes Compensation Center.
Email: ic3.iccc@usa.com
Tel/Fax: +1 240 297 6630
The email was sent from the email address "IC3 Internet Crimes Compensation Center <ic3_iccc@usa.com>", with the Reply-to address "ic3.iccc@usa.com" and the subject "Attn.Ic3".

The email is a classic example of an Advance Fee Fraud Scam with promises of a large sum of money. 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.
