Telephone number +22967174380 is being used as part of an Advance Fee Fraud Scam by someone claiming to be "Michael Smith" and using the email address western.unionofice01@gmail.com. The telephone number is included in the following Advance Fee Fraud email that is being sent to victims:
Attention,

through Western Union department after our finally meeting
regarding your fund, All you will do is to contact Western
Union director Mr. Michael Smith E-mail:(western.unionofice01@gmail.com)
He will give you direction on how you will be receiving the
funds daily.Remember to send him your Full information to

Though, Mr. Michael Smith has sent $5000 in your name today so

as you receive this email and tell him to give you the Mtcn,
sender name and question/answer to pick the $5000 Please let

Mrs. Rita George
The email was sent from the email address ""Mrs. Rita George" <info@wuo.org>", with the Reply-to address "western.unionofice01@gmail.com" and the subject "YOUR FIRST PAYMENT IS READY!".

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.
