From: Herbert Markus <email@example.com> Reply-To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: APPROVED LOAN
We give non-recourse loan with minimum of $500,000 and awesome maximum of $45B, annual interest is 2% starting from the second year and loan duration is 10 years before renewal of the contract. I have agreed with lender to release MT103 swift copy / confirmable wire transfer slip which borrower’s bank must confirm genuine before the borrower will pay administrative fees. I await your fully endorsed loan agreement including your valid identity as officially stipulated in the loan agreement for lender’s official countersigning subsequent to immediate wire transfer of your approved non recourse loan funds.

Why is this a loan scam?
- The email address used is a free Gmail address.
- 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.
