We had been corresponding with a reputable letting agency in Italy for a long term let of an apt when this guy pops up with an email saying he was the owner and we had to book through airbnb and pay 3 months upfront. See emails and link.

Let me explain you the process on Airbnb step by step for a better understanding:

- I will list the property on Airbnb for €500 per month . The rental contract must be made for at least 1 month - up to 4 years.

- You will have to pay 3 months deposit ( € 1,500 ) to Airbnb in order to confirm your booking. This 2 months deposit covers ( 1 month of rent + 2 months security deposit ) . You will receive back the security deposit at the end of the contract .

- After you will complete the booking online on Airbnb your deposit will be in their secure system. In case there is something that you do not like, you can have a full refund in the same day, but I assure you that the property is very beautiful and clean;

- The property is located in Viale Venezia, 36061 Bassano del Grappa . Viewing before booking is not possible since I'm not in Italy, but once you confirm the booking on Airbnb i'll come in person to give you the keys and to make the contract .

I'm able to send you the listing with my property on Airbnb if you're interested to make the booking .

Thank you for understanding,
