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.
- Loan businesses do not operate in multiple countries. True multi-national firms would have separate entities in each country that operate only within that country.
- Truly legitimate firms have no need to refer to their services as “Legit”, only scammers do that.
