Negative gearing idea

I just had a great idea. I lend you $1 mill. at 5% interest as an investment loan. You then deposit that money with me at 2%, leaving you 3% of $1 mill. out of pocket, which you can then claim as a tax deduction, thereby saving a lot of tax.

Does that make sense? Or is someone being conned?
