47777888 995559888 4555 47777888 44999988 666555997 : 8555444888477744488866888648833369!!

Walk Through:

Very clearly, this is either a T9 or Multitap cipher.
Multitap is the cipher in this instance though. Decode.fr has a tool to decode this.

You’ll get this plain text:

IF YOU ARE READING THE CIPHER, YOU ARE OKAY. YOUR SHARE OF THE HEIST IS IN YOUR HOUSE. THE KEY TO THE LOCK IS BELOW, GO TO PARIS GSV XLWV GL GSV HZU OLXP TLIVGRIVNVMGUFMW

What is that junk at the end you might ask? Well it’s actually an atbash cipher text.

GSV XLWV GL GSV HZU OLXP TLIVGRIVNVMGUFMW

We’ll use CyberChef to decipher one more time. Then you have your flag. Whoot!

Flag Example:

HTB{XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX}
