My assessment is that its the phone number of someone who's set out to
rip people off. A google on that number shows that its been used on a
number of scam posts (mostly the same or derivatives of the one sent to
this list) since at least July. Interestingly enough, another form of
the scam email listed a +34 (spanish) number. Note that a large number
of Imarsat numbers are associated with the Nigerian Scams (see
http://www.nigerianscams.org/phonefax/pf_MarsatMobileService.htm). See
elsewhere on that site for other details.

Once again, google is your friend (for those with access :-))
