Betreff: Anastasia's Urgent action required: Complete your booking 1-Room-Flat Offer 7244582
Hello Anastasia,

Hurray! This is to notify you that “Betty Thomson" has successfully submitted a viewing request for a property at Gipsstraße, 10119 Berlin, Germany. Betty is a verified landlord on WG-Gesucht.de and we take security very serious especially to our prospective tenants who are using the WG-Gesucht.de platform for the first time. Please note that all transactions for this property is made within WG-Gesucht.de and no payment should be sent to the landlord directly. Your reservation will be handled and completed by WG-Gesucht.de to keep both tenant and landlord safe. An WG-Gesucht.de representative has been assigned for the booking and you will receive another email upon completion of the appointment procedure.

To confirm your reservation/booking, a refundable deposit of €600.00EUR is required to be paid within the next (3)hours or the appointment will be cancelled. We hold the payment until 24 hours after viewing before releasing it to the landlord as a rent upfront (after the landlord has shown you the property and you've agreed to sign the lease). This gives both parties time to do a walk through upon move-in and make sure that everything is as expected and you’ll be protected by policies, such as cancellation policies and the Tenant Refund Policy.

What to do next?

Kindly visit any Bitcoin ATM, send the requested amount to the WG-Gesucht.de Bitcoin QR Code attached to this email, if you're using the ATM machine for the first time, there is an instruction on the machine but please note that you choose/scan our QR code attached to this email as your bitcoin wallet.. Once you've sent the payment on the ATM machine, send the receipt to "[email protected]” with the subject "1-Room-Flat Offer 7244582" and also a copy of this receipt to the landlord. We will contact the landlord once we receive the funds and you will receive another email from us on how to proceed.

Please send payment to WG-Gesucht.de Bitcoin Wallet or QR Code attached to this email:

We wish you much success.
Your WG-Gesucht.de Team
