The telephone number is included in the following Advance Fee Fraud email that is being sent to victims:

Others are from our New Jersey Customs Office branch,several banks in Europe and parts of Asia had all been sent to our office here in our Saint Petersburg office branch for our office to make clarification that you received your two consignment boxes.
Two days ago (Mrs. Susan Brown) sent to us a message stating that she was a family member of yours and she also said that you are no more alive and she made us to understand that you handed over your belonging to her when you were still alive. so, she is demanding from our office the two consignment boxes to be released to her as she is trying to stand as your next of kin but we are still waiting to see if you will respond to this email within three days as (HOME LAND SECURITY REVENUE)(FBI) AND UNITED NATIONS) has warned us to be very careful in our dealings with you and that was the reason we ignored the message from Mrs. Susan Brown but still awaiting to see if you will respond to this alert message for us to be sure that you are still alive before we tell you the next line of action and the best way you can received

The email was sent from the email address "US CUSTOMS AND BORDER PROTECTION <44387@swiftng.com>", with the Reply-to address "<russell_1@msn.com>" and the subject "Re: Urrgent Notice From U.S Customs and Border Protection. ARE YOU DEAD OR ALIVE?".

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.
