Telephone number +17865880296 is being used as part of an Advance Fee Fraud Scam by someone claiming to be "Teresa L. Carlson", FBI Special Agent and using the email address fbi.a@aol.com. The telephone number is included in the following Advance Fee Fraud email that is being sent to victims:
Hello ,
This is Mrs. Teresa L. Carlson , from FBI .
I am contacting you regarding your abandon package worth of $10.5 Million USD. Kindly get back to me if you are still alive and interested to claim your package because a man called Anderson by name contacted us and he claimed to be your representative I want to no if he is truly your representative before it will be too late . I need your urgent response immediately. Thank you .
Mrs. Teresa L. Carlson, FBI Special agent. My whats-app Number is +1(786)588-0296
The email was sent from the email address "Fbi Agent <atm_centre@yahoo.com>", with the Reply-to address "fbi.a@aol.com" and the subject "Hello".

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.
