Loan Scam – firstname.lastname@example.org
The below loan scam email was sent to an email address that exists only to catch scam emails. It has never been used to register on any site, only to communicate with scammers.

Yes, this really is all that the useless scammer was capable of writing.
Why is this a loan scam?
- The email address used is a free AOL address.
- The email was mass-mailed to many recipients using BCC.
- No legitimate business would mass mail an email that just consists of the word “loan”, clearly the work of one of the dumbest of the dumb scammers.
- The email gives no indication of who is offering the loan, where they are based or who they are regulated by.
