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 Financier.com address.
- The email was mass-mailed to many recipients using BCC.
- The actual email just refers the recipient to the attachment. A legitimate business would not do this, but scammers do it to try and avoid anti-spam filters.
- The email indicates that the sender is in South Africa, which is a known Advance Fee Fraud hotspot.
