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 addresses used are free a Yahoo address and an address on a domain that was only registered just over a month ago by someone using a privacy service to hide their identity.
- The email was mass-mailed to many recipients using BCC.
- The ridiculous upper amount of loan being offered.
