Telephone number +27640445420 is being used as part of an Advance Fee Fraud Scam by someone claiming to be "Philip Saunders" and using the email address engr.philipsaunders1@gmail.com. The telephone number is included in the following Advance Fee Fraud email that is being sent to victims:
Dear friend,

I hope all is well with you and family. I am Engr. Philip Saunders
Projects Supervisor under South African Ministry of Minerals and
Energy Resources. I am making this contact with you based on the
committee’s need for an individual/company who is willing to assist us
with a solution to an overdue contract claim.

It is understandable that you might be a little bit apprehensive
because you do not know me, I got your contact information from a
reputable business/professional directory of your country which gives
me assurance of your legibility as a person.

If you feel this may be of interest, write me back on my private e-mail:
(engr.philipsaunders1@gmail.com) or call my direct telephone Tel. No: +27 64
044 5420
for more details and clarification.

On receipt of your response, I will forward to you further information
which will give you a clearer overview of this opportunity.

Yours faithfully,
Engr.Philip Saunders
The email was sent from the email address ""Engr.Philip Saunders" <daniela.kirovska@mon.gov.mk>", with the Reply-to address "engr.philipsaunders01@gmail.com" and the subject "Business Proposal!".

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.
