I offer mortgages, cars and investments of 5,000 euros to 52.5 million euros over a period of 5 years to 20 years, depending on the repayment capacity, with an interest rate of 2% per year. and the conditions are very simple.
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 address 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.
