I am Alex from 101 Capital Management LLC in Wyoming. I am a private lender and I’d like to connect with you and be a part of your network. As we all navigate the ‘New Normal’, it is imperative that you have a lender who can close your deals in a timely manner. With all the pandemic-related bad news out there, it’s hard to believe that you can still secure financing in order to complete investment transactions. At 101 Capital Management LLC, we don’t let cash sit idle, we’re not restricted by regulatory bureaucracy or fear of inadequate cash reserves. Loans? They’re still around for the picking for those who qualify. So here’s the deal – we are still here, and more importantly, we are lending. Please contact me if you have deals/clien.
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 Gmail address.
- The email gives no indication of who the company offering the loan are regulated by.
