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 anonymously registered less than 2 months ago.
- The email was mass-mailed to many recipients using BCC.
- The telephone number used is a UK mobile phone, despite the “company” claiming to be in Oman. Additionally, legitimate financial businesses do not use mobile phones as their main telephone number.
