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 registered only 6 months ago by someone in South Africa.
- The email gives no indication of where the “company” who are offering the loan are based or who they are regulated by.
