Why is this a loan scam?
- The email address used is a free Gmail address.
- The message was posted on LinkedIn. Legitimate lenders would not advertise in such a manner.
- The email gives no indication of who is offering the loan, where they are based or who they are regulated by.
- The ridiculous upper amount of loan being offered.
