The below loan scam email was sent to an email address that exists only to catch scam emails. It has never been used to register on any site, only to communicate with scammers.
Reply-To: email@example.com From: Adam Ousman <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: Businesses Projects, To: undisclosed-recipients:; Bcc: [REDACTED]
I am Adam Ousman. My Company can help you facilitate a loan for your
New or Ongoing Business Project with good ROI (Return on Investment),
especially with the hit of the pandemic which is ravaging most
Businesses/Projects. Do let me know when you receive this message for
further information if only you are interested.
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.
- The ridiculous upper amount of loan being offered.
