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 CC, meaning all their email addresses are visible – a data breach that no real company would commit.
- The email gives no indication of who is offering the loan, where they are based or who they are regulated by.
- No real loan lender would use the phrase “LEGIT LOAN OFFER”
