Do you need a loan to enhance your business? Are you in debt? Have you been rejected by banks and
other financial institutions? I offer loans ranging from a minimum amount of $20,000 to $20,000,000 at a
favorable low interest rate.
I offer the following loans:
real estate loans
Lines of Credit

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 Outlook.com 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 ridiculous upper amount of loan being offered.
