Good Day Mr/Mrs
Do you need a Loan to start up a business? if yes kindly get back to
me for more information.
Why is this a loan scam?
- The email address used is a free Gmail address.
- The email was mass-mailed to many recipients using BCC.
- The email gives no indication of who is offering the loan, where they are based or who they are regulated by.
