Are you an investor, entrepreneur or a businessman? Do you have a
viable project; whether ongoing or abandoned? Is the project able to
generate enough Return on Investment (ROI)? Abu Dhabi Group can

USD/Euros/Pounds/Dirham to enable you
finance the project.
If you need business or project loan to finance your project, kindly
send your reply to me (firstname.lastname@example.org), and please make sure

type of project you plan to undertake.
As soon as I receive your reply, I will send you the contact
information of the Director of Loans and Investments at Abu Dhabi

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 ridiculous upper amount of loan being offered.
