Firstly, and most obviously, what sort of lender lends up to R10 million to total strangers without any hint of security? And at 2.8%?
Real money lenders, whether they're banks, orthodox micro-lenders or even hoodlums on street corners want some sort of security, either your home, your car or just your kneecaps. Real lenders have landline telephone numbers and proper email addresses.
Real lenders can punctuate correctly.
Finally real lenders are actually registered companies, something "Highgate Finance Corporation Pty Ltd" seems to have neglected.
