reach local borrowers. %1 commission will be paid per project
funding. We are still funding from $1million to $10 Billion
(LOAN) to Private Individuals / Company @ 2% interest rate per
annul, for 10 to 15 years yearly with a 2 year grace period.
There will be face-to-face loan closure meeting to sign the loan
agreement and funds disbursement.

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 gives no indication of who is offering the loan or who they are regulated by.
- The ridiculous upper amount of loan being offered.
