Why is this a loan scam?

  1. It was sent from a totally different email address to the one that you are asked to reply to.
  2. The email was mass-mailed to many recipients using BCC.
  3. The email gives no indication of who is offering the loan (except for a link to a website), where they are based or who they are regulated by.
  4. The ridiculous upper amount of loan being offered.
  5. The email originated from Benin, which is a known Advance Fee Fraud hotspot.
  6. The registrant details for the domain are fake (invalid address and clearly fake phone number)
