Telephone number +2348168062282 is being used as part of an Advance Fee Fraud Scam by someone claiming to be "Dr Paul Uba" and using the email address pauluba44@hotmail.com. The telephone number is included in the following Advance Fee Fraud email that is being sent to victims:
Attn:Sir

Thanks for your mail response.
Let me first informed you now that before any fund will transfer to you , It must be properly approve. The reason being that the foundation of the fund was faulty.I am the director of Operations,Federal ministry of finance Abuja Nigeria.

Sir,the funniest aspect of the whole thing is that the process of securing genuine approval is just a small amount of money, I am talking about something like $850 but the only thing is that it must be properly approved through a federal high court of Nigeria.
Get in touch with me so that I can explain everything to you because once we secure the court approval,your fund will be in your account within one week.

Again once We get the approval and the permission for your fund to be broken up and be paid in bits,then you are as good as paid because anybody telling you that you will be paid a large sum of money once now is a joker because we are under recession and does not have money as before.

I will advice you to do your possible best to send the money soon today through western union or money gram with name below.

Receivers name:James Uche Nwaogu
Address:91 Bank Street Abuja Nigeria
Test Question:To Who
Answer:James
Amount:$850.00

I want you to receive your $10.5 Million U.S.A Dollars Soon.
I wait to hear from you soon.
My Regards.
Dr Paul Uba
Call me 234 8168062282
The email was sent from the email address ""DR.PAUL UBA" <pauluba44@hotmail.com>", with the subject "RE: URGENT".

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.
