Why is this a loan scam?
- The email gives no indication of who is offering the loan, where they are based or who they are regulated by.
- The website for the domain from which the email was sent and replies go to has nothing to do with financial services.
- The ridiculous amount of loan being offered.
- The ridiculous interest rate being offered.
ps-union.com appears to be a legitimate website that has nothing to do with loans or financial services. It is likely that the scammers have taken control of one of their email addresses and are using it for this scam.
