I’m so glad my lawyer got a good lender, Mr. Mike Stephenson, when you
gave him a loan of approximately $ 25,000, you can email him easily if
he is really interested in the need for a loan through:
firstname.lastname@example.org. Or, you can send a text message and also
whatsapp them through: +12256273571
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 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.
