Good day,( Sir/Ma )
Do you need a loan with fixed interest rate of 3%? If yes get back to
us via email: firstname.lastname@example.org for further proceedings.
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.
