Telephone number +27866575581is being used as part of an Advance Fee Fraud Scam by someone claiming to be "James Ncube", from South African Reserve Bank and using the email address ncubej823@gmail.com. The telephone number in included in the following Advance Fee Fraud email that is being sent to victims:
Attn:

*CATEGORY “A” FUNDS BENEFICIARY*

The South African Department of Finance and South African Reserve Bank
has granted the approval of your funds transfer.

The above authority has stipulated that the transfer should be of
utmost priority,
as it was accomplished with keen interest. On this note, we do wish to
inform the beneficiary that urgent attention is been given to this
transfer by creating an emergency onward Transfer account, otherwise
known as South African Multiple Option Payment System (SAMOPS). This
is in compliance with
the Financial Intelligence Centre Act (FICA). Under the Foreign
Exchange Control Regulation Act of 1991, paragraph 1, subsection 12b
of the Foreign Transfer.

KINDLY RESPOND TO THIS MAIL TO ENABLE US START THE PROCESS.

WE REMAIN
SOUTH AFRICAN RESERVE BANK

OFFICE OF THE GOVERNOR
MR. J. NCUBE
Tel/ Fax: +27866575581
The email was sent from the email address "James Ncube <ncubej823@gmail.com>", with the subject "Attn:".

The email raises a number of red flags that indicate that this is a scam. Firstly, Government officials do not use free email addresses such as Gmail. Secondly, they do not randomly write to people advising them that they are entitled to large sums of money. Thirdly, the email was sent to multiple recipients using BCC. 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.
