Why is this a loan scam?
- The email addresses used is a free Gmail address.
- The email was mass-mailed to many recipients all of whose addresses were in the To. field.
- The email gives no indication of who is offering the loan, where they are based or who they are regulated by.
- The ridiculous interest rate being offered.
