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. And the sending address belongs to a University in the USA.
  • 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.
  • The email originated from an IP address, which is a proxy server often abused by scammers.
