Why is this a loan scam?

  1. The email address used is a free Gmail address.
  2. The email was mass-mailed to many recipients using BCC.
  3. The email gives no indication of who where the company offering the loan are based or who they are regulated by.
  4. The website quoted is a free Weebly sub-domain, which is not something a company in the financial services industry would be using.
