I am a retired banker, now consulting for Investors.
The Investors are providing loan funding to anyone who has a good business/project in need of finance at 3% interest rate annually with minimal documents required to conclude funding modalities.
Also, a fee: 1% is paid to anyone who introduces project owner for finance. and we are ready to fund any project up to 500,000,000 EURO (five Hundred Million Euro ).
I anticipate your reply.
Why is this a loan scam?
- The email addresses used is a free Gmail address.
- 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.
- The ridiculous upper amount of loan being offered.
