Sorry I did not understand the question from the title.

It is not the way to send file attachments like that. There is no boundary attached to multipart-form-data either.

Is there a reason why you have to use curl to send a fax? Using the RingCentral PHP SDK would help you simply your code and handle lots of overhead exception handlings. Look at this quick start to see how easy to send a fax using the SDK.

If you insist to use curl, let me know so I can spare some time to write it for you or read this
