Hello sir madam.
Do you have financial problems?

Do you want to get a loan for your personal needs?
Do you want to have a loan for your children’s studies?
you no longer have to worry.
I am a private investor and I grant loans of $ 10,000 to
$ 700,000,000. with an annual interest rate of 3% to all honest people.
You just have to contact me via my e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org
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 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.
- The ridiculous upper amount of loan being offered.
