    Why I suspect it as a scam:

    1. There's no registered company called Norton Finance
    2. There are a few other complains on the internet, with the same content, but the email account and sometimes the phone number as well, changes every time.
    3. Why, if it's a company, don't they use a company email address?
    4. No company address
    5. No company registration details. AFAIK, any credit loan provider should advertise this.
    6. No unsubscribe links
    7. very unprofessional email. Why was the content in a Word document, which could generally not be scanned by anti-spam solutions?
