Thanks for the mail, i am so happy to let you know that the apartment is still very much available for rent.Here are some important information about the apartment. The apartment cost 500euro per month including all bills such as water, electricity,internet connection,water available, microwave oven,fridge,gas e.t.c plus 500euro for security deposit payment which is refundable while packing without any lost or damage of my properties.

The apartment is located at Scheuchzer street 143, 8006 Zürich, Switzerland and it just about 1.2km distance to its metro station,the apartment spacious is about 80sqm and a room is about 30sqm, restaurant and public transport all around and it's 8mins walking distance to the supermarket, so it's located in a very nice and safe area in Zurich.

Attached are some pics of how my apartment looks like.

Kindly let me know if you will be interested in renting my apartment so that we can proceed further.

You can simply reach me on +380939006593 for further discussion on the apartment.

Best regards,

This person asks for a deposit payment via Western Union or MoneyGram with a promise that he will send the keys through a courier company.

Sounds safe. It's not!

At other times, he will ask for proof that you are able to pay the deposit and rent due to a string of time wasters.
This proof is in the form of a Western Union or MoneyGram payment to a friend or family member.

In either case, if payment is made and you give this person the details, they will collect the money.
You will not hear from them again.

If you are reading this because you are looking for property to rent, and you are in contact with this thief you are probably searching Craigslist, Gumtree or similar listing sites. If you receive any requests from 'Landlords' asking for some kind of payment before viewing, then it will also be a scam. Please forward the mail to me at the address in my signature line and I will investigate and list them if necessary.
