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. All the email addresses used are free addresses.
  3. The email was mass-mailed to many recipients using BCC.
  4. The email indicates that the company is based in South Africa, but is targeting victims worldwide.
  5. The email is sent from South Africa, but through a server in Qatar.
  6. The ridiculous upper amount of loan being offered.
  7. The email mentions that the loans are guaranteed and a low interest rate. No legitimate lender would make such a promise, they would underwrite loans individually
