Telephone number +17178960388 is being used as part of an Advance Fee Fraud Scam by someone claiming to be "William H. Rogers Jr.", Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Sun Trust Bank and using the email address suntrustbmanagerrr@gmail.com. The telephone number is included in the following Advance Fee Fraud email that is being sent to victims:
SUN TRUST BANK HEAD OFFICE.
Head Office address :SunTrust Plaza, 303
Peachtree Street Northeast Atlanta, GA 30308-3201
Phone: + 1 717 896 0388

Attn Beneficiary,

Are you dead or alive? because someone came to your claim the
$25Million that late Mr. Ali left for Charity in your name,but we told
the person that we must hear from you to know if you are the person
that directed them or not.

Secondly,kindly resend us your full name and home address and cell
phone including your valid ID if you didn't authorize them to receive
this funds,because we are going to arrest them when they comes back
tomorrow if only you didn't authorize the.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Mr. William H. Rogers , Jr.

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Sun Trust Bank.
The email was sent from the email address "Mr. William H. Rogers , Jr <mzuckerberg68@gmail.com>", with the Reply-to address "suntrustbmanagerrr@gmail.com" and the subject "ARE YOU DEAD OR ALIVE?".

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.
