Why is this a loan scam?

  1. It was sent from a totally different email address to the one that you are asked to reply to.
  2. The email addresses used are both free Gmail and Outlook addresses.
  3. The email was mass-mailed to many recipients using BCC
  4. The email gives no indication of where the lender is based or who they are regulated by.
  5. The ridiculous low interest rate being offered.
