Telephone number +27835239314 is being used as part of an Advance Fee Fraud Scam by someone claiming to be "James Morris" and using the email address jm_associate@webmail.co.za. The telephone number is included in the following Advance Fee Fraud email that is being sent to victims:
Dear Friend,

I am sorry for the embarrassment this mail might cause you, as we have
not met before. I am Barrister James Morris, a solicitor at law; I was
the personal attorney German Foreigner by name Adolf Merckle aged 74
years old,who committed suicide on January 5th 2009 after his business
empire ran into trouble in the global economic financial crisis.
Please refer to the news website below to read more about our late


Since then nobody has done anything as regards to the claiming of this
money as he has no family member here in South that is aware of the
existence of either the account or the fund. Several attempt to trace
any of his relative proof abortive and also Information from the
National Immigration office states that late Adolf Merckle was alone
on point of entry into Africa. I came across your name and contact
while in search of my client relations and decided to ask for your
assistance for the realization of this project. Before his demise, my
client had lodged the sum of US$28,500,000.00 (Twenty Eight Million,
Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars Only) with a bank here in
Africa, with the hope of transferring the money to his account
overseas in bits.

After his death nobody has come forward to claim the money as his next
of kin, the Bank last year gave me 12 months’ notice to provide his
Next of Kin or have the money confiscated; this ultimatum will expire
in a few months’ time. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the
relatives for over three years now, I seek your consent to present you
as the Next of Kin of my deceased Client so that the ownership of this
$USD28.5 Million Dollars can be transferred to you to enable you and I
share it on the following percentage of 50% for me and 45% for you,
and the remaining 5% will be used for expenses and tax.

I will also procure all necessary legal documents that can be used to
back up any claim we may make. All I require is your honest
co-operation to enable us see this business through. I guarantee that
this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect
you from any breach of the law. Do forward your reply to my private
email for urgent attention ( jm_associate@webmail.co.za )

Sincerely yours,

James Morris Esq.

EMAIL: jm_associate@webmail.co.za
The email was sent from the email address "James Morris Esq <duoglasfoundt@gmail.com>", with the subject "From James Morris Esq".

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.
