Mr. Gomez Jones
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 AOL address.
- The email was mass-mailed to many recipients using BCC.
- The email gives no indication of exactly where the company are based (regulation in the USA is State based) or who they are regulated by.
