Why is this a loan scam?
- It was sent from a totally different email address to the one that you are asked to reply to.
- The email address used is from a domain registered with unrelated details.
- 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 ridiculous upper amount of loan being offered.
