Telephone number +17149165981 is being used as part of an Advance Fee Fraud Scam by someone claiming to be "Thomas R. Cangemi", Payment Officer at Roosevelt Savings Bank and using the email address rooseveltsavingsbankusa@gmail.com. The telephone number in included in the following Advance Fee Fraud email that is being sent to victims:
THE DIRECTOR
INTERNATIONAL REMITTANCE DEPT,
ROOSEVELT SAVINGS BANK, USA
Email: rooseveltsavingsbankusa@gmail.com

Dear Sir,

PAYMENT ON ACCRUED INTEREST OF US$2.5M

I am the Executive Director and Head of Swift Transfer Unit of Foreign Payment Clearing of Roosevelt Savings Bank U.S.A.

Sometime ago, in our bank your contract money was brought to our bank from Nigerian Apex Bank, Central Bank of Nigeria (C.B.N.) and after some period, this money was taken back to the Federal Government Treasury. For the period of time this money was in our bank, it generated an interest of US$2.5 Million, which we are about to be paid to you via International Certified ATM Card.

For your information and advice, you need to hasten up to pick this fund because from time to time, the CBN auditors do come to our Bank to cross-check our files and our financial updates, the earlier you comply with the demands of the delivery of the fund, the faster the action, because the CBN Officials wants the accrued interest to be paid to them but we refused. So when they find out that this interest fund is still in our bank they will want to call back the money to the Federal Government Treasury.

What we need from you now is any form of your identification for example: your International Passport or your drivers license, then your telephone and fax number for easy communication with your mailing address where this Draft will be delivered to you.

As a matter of fact, we don't have enough time to waste since we have wasted time in contacting our respective customers, so try and comply with the entire necessary requirement for remittance.

Contact me on Tel: +1-714-916-5981 cell phone, expecting your immediate response.

Yours Sincerely,

Thomas R. Cangemi.
Payment Officer
ROOSEVELT SAVINGS BANK,
U.S.A
The email was sent from the email address "ROOSEVELT SAVINGS BANK <aubreydavidsolicitorsuk@gmail.com>", with the subject "RE: PAYMENT ON ACCRUED INTEREST".

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