Thanks for the reply, Regarding to your question , its possible for
you to come for the viewing. However, i can make a perfect reservation
for you as i am giving you 100% guarantee as the flat is still
available. Yet some prospective tenants do not have the money to pay
the rent and they disturb the landlord to arrange a viewing, so i
wouldn't like such to happen again.

More so, i have 2 other interested candidates that just provided their
details for the tenancy agreement and also willing to make an advance
deposit to secure the flat but i declined because they have a big
family with children, 3 cats and dogs.

Nevertheless, i will appreciate if you would be able to get the
security deposit transferred now via online banking or locate the
bank. Upon verification of payment, we proceed immediately with the
viewing. We can proceed with the viewing Saturday at 12:30pm or at
your convenient time

Please let me know if you are willing to proceed with the payment so
that i can provide to you the bank account details. You will pay the
rent after the viewing and note that making a deposit doesn't mean you
must rent my flat after the viewing, if you decide not to proceed with
the rent, then i will refund the deposit immediately without any

Hope to read from you soon.


It is ALWAYS a scam
If the pet seller or shipper asks for money to be sent via Western Union, Money Gram, any brand of gift card. Walmart To Walmart , Zelle , PayPal friends and family option, or mentions Cameroon

FYI - This person is still at it. I replied to their advert on gumtree, and they were asking me to sign a tenancy agreement before I had even viewed the house.

Hi there

I just joined as I had a good to be true offer from Zara, so I googled her just now before relying to her. Sadly, she is a con and I am surprised how often she got away with it from what what I can see here. So how does one deal with this?
