Mr Chris Cameron
Why is this a loan scam?
- It was sent from a totally different email address to the one that you are asked to reply to.
- The email addresses used are both free Gmail addresses.
- The email was mass-mailed to many recipients using BCC
- The email gives no indication of who is offering the loan, where they are based or who they are regulated by.
