Why is this a loan scam?
- The email address used is a free Yandex email address.
- The email was mass-mailed to many recipients using BCC.
- The ridiculous upper amount of loan being offered.
- The use of the phrase “God Bless” is indicative of a West African scammer, many of whom view religion as indicating honesty and trust.
