Why is this a loan scam?
- 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 the company that is offering the loan, where they are based or who they are regulated by.
- The ridiculous upper amount of loan being offered.
