Telephone number +447537102300 is being used as part of an Advance Fee Fraud Scam by someone claiming to be "Jeff Swart" and using the email address pfacilitators.uk@outlook.com. The telephone number in included in the following Advance Fee Fraud email that is being sent to victims:
Attn: Sir/Madam

I am Mr. Jeff Swart from United Kingdom London, I was directed by HSBC & Chase Bank of UK to pay the sum of US$3,800,000.00 to you as a compensation fund due to many fund transaction you were engaged in the past, and you have spent your hard earn money finally did not receive the fund.

Kindly respond to this message in order to direct you on how to receive the fund by Bank Wire Transfer to any of your nominated bank account within 5 days without any further delay.

I look forward to receive your urgent response. Call or whatsapp me on the below phone number.

Email: pfacilitators.uk@outlook.com
Telephone: +447537102300

Regards

Mr. Jeff Swart
England United Kingdom
The email was sent from the email address "jeff swart <jeffswart042@gmail.com>", with the subject "Compensation"

The email raises a number of red flags that indicate that this is a scam. Firstly, banks and major companies do not use free email addresses such as Outlook. Secondly, the email has been sent from a totally different address to the one that you are asked to reply to. Scammers do this because they expect that the email address that is used to send out the hundreds of copies of this mail could well be shut down and they want to be able to receive replies. Thirdly, the email address account "unionbankplc341" includes no indication of the senders name. Bank and large companies do not use general email addresses, employees have their own personal email accounts. Thirdly, the email was sent to multiple recipients using BCC. Finally, companies do not randomly write to people advising them that they are entitled to large sums of money (in this case three million, eight hudred thousand dollars). This is a classic example of an Advance Fee Fraud Scam and 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.

In addition to the above red flags, the fact that telephone number +447537102300 is a mobile phone is another major indication that this is a scam. Banks and large companies do not use mobile phones as a means of contact, they have proper landline phone numbers.
