    Well, I managed to find the +234 part of the phone number. it's from nigeria. but, the site I found it on displays this message...

    Get 800 toll free numbers that forward your calls to nigeria phone numbers, or, get nigeria phone numbers and other 800 toll free numbers that forward calls to any phone in the world. nigeria phone numbers and usa/canada 800 toll free numbers available for instant activation.

    So, I don't know if the email scammers are from nigeria, or just have a fake phone number to hide where they really are.

    When I get emails like this, I reply to them with "get a job!"

    I received this one and many like it. if they were honest offers, I would be a very rich man as I have won the uk lottery more times than I can count, usually everyday and now this. the internet is becoming a rip off place. beware, be very aware.
