let me start by saying i wish i had seen this before. most people are not naive enough to fall for scams, but i got hit via ebay (like so many others). well i have what i think is a new scam for everyone. just made me chuckle when i accidently opened it so i thought i would pass it along. i say never again but sometimes it is funny stuff.

Hi, this is a typical loans scam, this particular version has been around for a little while, you can see it posted on some other sites in the Google cache:

http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en&q= ... arch&meta=

Basically, if you were to contact them asking for a loan, they would grant it to you, but there would be fees you would have to pay to set up the loan, then there might be another fee, or you will not hear from them again after paying the fees.

Nobody should ever apply for a loan from a company who has sent them an unsolicited email, you should only ever try to get a loan from an approved and recognised bank or finance company, if you are in a position where you can't get a bank loan etc, you are then in murky waters and at the mercy of scammers or loan sharks.

Please edit your first post and add the full email you received it from, along with the contact imformation from the bottom of the email that you have left off, thanks.

Remember, if it seems to good to be true, then it is.

The spelling and grammar are also pure "Scammer Speak" which you get to recognise instantly after a while, eg "Treshold" when I assume they mean "Threshold", a simple error a genuine UK company would never make.
