Loan Scam – firstname.lastname@example.org
The below loan scam email was sent to an email address that exists only to catch scam emails. It has never been used to register on any site, only to communicate with scammers.

Kindly let me know if you are still interested in getting a loan from us?
I need reply as soon as possible.
Why is this a loan scam?
- The email address used is a free Gmail address.
- The email gives no indication of who is offering the loan, where they are based or who they are regulated by.
- The email address it was sent to has never shown any interest in getting a loan from this sender or anyone else.
