Loan Scam

Postby Pinky on Sat Apr 19, 2008 10:16 am
My degree is in English Teaching/Secondary Education, but to put myself through college I worked as a bank loan officer for 7 years. This stuff pains me to see. Not only is it an obvious scam, but no bank officer would last long doing business like this. The grammatical errors are in blue and the big financial red flags are in red:

Terrible isn't it? 

But what you've got to remember is that a lot of people who receive this scam letter, may not read or speak English very well. So even though you and I can laugh at it's errors, to some people it may seem very convincing. :( 

Thanks for posting it. If you've got the full email address that it came from, feel free too post that as well. ;)
