How are you doing today hope you are fine, well i just want to know
what is going on with you and i also want to know if you are still
ready to finalize this transaction with us because am tired of
emailing all the time without no response from you so it will be
better if you can just let me know what is going to happen so that we
can move on with the transfer of your loan funds as the loan have
already been deposited in the bank.and the only requested fee you are
to pay and you get the loan I will be waiting for your
response so we know what is next to do to your loan file OK.
Why is this a loan scam?
- The email address used is a free Gmail address.
- The email gives no indication of who is offering the loan, where they are based or who they are regulated by.
- The email is one of a series that have been spammed to the same victim over a period of time.
