Why is this a loan scam?
- The email address used is a free Consultant.com address.
- The message gives no indication of who is offering the loan, where they are based or who they are regulated by.
- Legitimate lenders would not be spamming LinkedIn offering loans.
- The telephone number is a Turkish mobile phone. Legitimate businesses do not use mobile phones as their main contact
