Here are the signs to look out for:

1 – The “reply-to” email is a googlemail address. A reputable loan company would not use a free email provider.
2 – The telephone number begins with “4470” – this is a “redirect” number, which can be forwarded to a mobile phone anywhere in the world, but looks like you’re calling the UK.

Google has this to offer when searching on Questa Finance Loan: ... h&aq=f&oq=

Soon this site will come up as well. Hopefully, people will do their due diligence when receiving tempting offers like this through their email.
