Email body

I can help you secure non recourse loan without upfront fees but meeting with each other is very essential because lender cannot release funds to a total stranger. Borrowers are privileged to meet lender’s international payment representatives in their countries / neighboring countries to guarantee quality non-recourse loan payment. The minimum loan is 500K USD and maximum loan is 45 Billion USD, annual interest is 2% and loan duration is 10 years..

Why is this a loan scam?

  • The email address used is a free Yahoo 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.
