Room for Rent and other rental scams

This guy uses this email [email protected] for rentals in Copenhagen. However, my story started with an email sent to an alleged landlady on Craiglist. She goes under the name Erica and email [email protected]. I guess they are related or maybe even the same person

This is what I got as a reply from her:

It is a pleasure to hear from you but it is a big sad that someone faster than you have already book my apartment not quiet long and she has book it for one year.

I can still help you out because i know it is very difficult to get an apartment this days. one of our co-worker has been transferred to abroad to work with our company and his apartment should be empty at the movement. it will be advisable if you can contact him to know if his apartment is still available for rent.

Name: Christopher

Private email: [email protected]

Kindly sent him a message via his email address to know if his apartment is available for rent and for more information about his apartment but his apartment is very clean and it is located in the city center as well.


Below are the emails I got from Christopher:

I'm 5.8' straight. I swim for fun and sometimes play tennis. I like the job because it involves traveling which is one of my hobbies, I love going around to understand more culture and to meet new people.

I was born in Ireland. My father from Ireland while my mother from Denmark. Inherit this apartment from my late mother and i was living in this Apartment before i receive my transfer letter back to Ireland.

I move down to Ireland few months ago and my apartment is empty at the moment.I am working here in Ireland at the moment That’s why i am searching for reliable tenant who is going to take good care of this apartment for me in my absence because am still going to be here for some years.

Whenever i traveled like that, I make use of house agent or a friend of mine over there but they cheated a lot on my tenants and my tenants complains a lot about that. That is the reason why i took the keys along with me because i don't want my apartment to be used anyhow in my absence. Also, I would like to put my trust in you.It is now your turn to tell me something about your self.

Due to the nature of my Job am not always available on phone as i always off my phone but am on my ipad to check mail.Just write me a message on my email to ask me what ever question you want to ask.
