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 where the “company” that are offering the loans are based or who they are regulated by.
- The ridiculous upper amount of loan being offered.
