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 domain that was only registered a couple of weeks ago by someone using a proxy service to hide their identity.
- The email gives no indication of where the company offering the loan are based or who they are regulated by.
