ARE YOU STILL INTERESTED IN GETTING YOUR LOAN???
Why is this a loan scam?
- 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 email gives the impression that the recipient has had previous correspondence with the sender, but they haven’t.
