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 on a fairly recently registered domain, whose owner used a privacy service to hide their details. There is no need for a legitimate business to hide their identity in such a manner.
- The email gives no indication of who the company offering the loan are regulated by.
- The ridiculous upper amount of loan being offered.
- The company claims to be in Malaysia, but the email originated from Nigeria, which is a known Advance Fee Fraud hotspot.
