Loan scam

In a loan scam, a crook will make you believe he may grant you a loan but will ask for money first.

A money loan is a supervised financial operation that is the preserve of banks or governments.

If you are looking for a loan, you should avoid websites of unknown organisms. Even if these organizations justify being not famous in your country as supposedly being from foreign countries. To try to convince you, they will also argue to be genuine institutions in their countries of origin. Flee also spontaneously emails received and promising you quick and easy loans.

In both cases – website of a fake organization pretending to propose loans or email of an individual – scammers will first agree to grant you your loan. But then, they will pretend that you have to pay administrative fees or other preliminary fees before you can receive any money. If you pay these fees, there will be other fees, again and again, until you stop paying and realize it is a scam. Finally, you will lose money instead of getting more !
