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 is offering the loan or who they are regulated by.
  4. The sender claims to be located in Togo, but the email originated from Benin, which is a known Advance Fee Fraud hotspot.
