    You are going to be overwhelmed with scams! You will never find a real loan by advertising the way you are. As for, lets do a reality check: Use Google to search for "". He "advertises" and responds from the US to Russia, Europe to South Africa. In reality you would never qualify for an international loan. Yet he would obtain your personal details, tell you you qualify, "just pay these admin fees, bank fees ....": Read up about "advance fee fraud". Also a real financial institution would not use a free "" (Hotmail) email address. You can't even see where this scammer is located in the emails as Microsoft hides these details. In the meantime he has your personal details and may well be impersonating you! When you are finally destitute, you may well receive threat on your life or your loved ones - the so called "Hitman Scam", trying to extort more money from you. This has happened numerous times in South Africa and is still happening. Going to the police in an international incident, because this is what this will be, will get you no joy and any money you have lost would be gone forever. This would also not be a failing of the police, rather having nothing to work on. The internet is not for sissies, as Paul Vixie once said. So please learn more about the internet before posting any of your details online or sharing it with anyone.
