Hi !

I'm contacting you about your interest in renting my apartment situated in Rue Gustave Defnet 66 1060 St-Gilles.
The monthly rent price is 400 EUR, including all utilities (gas / electricity / phone / cable / internet / parking / heating), and its for an indefinite period.
The apartment is in good condition, clean and ready to use. The apartment is available for a long-term rent, so you can stay there how long you want.
In general I have rented with AirBnB my flat and it`s safe 100 %.
Airbnb provides an online platform that connects hosts who have accommodations to rent with guests seeking to rent such accommodations.

Regards,

Daniela

Hi

Nice to hear from you!
Let me introduce myself, my name is : Daniela Bonancin Amaral, I am an architect, I moved to the Faroe Islands, I have a project here that will take 3-4 years.
Airbnb charge some fees for services that they offer, to avoid taxes we reserve the apartment only for the first 2 months through their system + security deposit ( the security deposit is refundable ).
After you see the apartment we will do the lease agreement for the period that you want.
In order to book the apartment, you will have to do the payment to Airbnb with your credit card. Airbnb will hold your payment until you have received the keys, the lease agreement and you have seen the apartment. After you see the apartment, you will have to take your decision, if you wish to rent it or not.
I will receive the money only after you have seen the apartment and decided to take it.
If the apartment is not as I have presented it, you have the right to refuse it. Airbnb will return your money to your account in 12 hours from your decision.
After the first 2 months you will pay the rent monthly directly to my personal bank account.
IMPORTANT! You forgot to tell me when you want to move.
If everything sounds good to you, please send me your full name, address and phone number and I will send you the AIRBNB Link were you can BOOK.
If you require any further information, feel free to contact me.

Regards,
Daniela Bonancin Amaral

I can confirm this scam!!

Today (27th of August, 2019) I was contacting Daniela Bonancin Amaral about a cheap but modern apartment in the center of Lisbon.

I quickly received "exactly" the same email as mentioned in this thread above. Additionally, she states that her place is listed with Airbnb and that the first payments have to go over the Airbnb services...when in reality the place does not appear in any Airbnb search.

I must admit, she sounds convincing in her long email, explaining the payment procedure over Airbnn etc. Dont rent it!.

This is where I found the offer: https://www.expat.com/en/housing/europe ... tment.html

Thank god I found this forum before I made any commitments.

Stay safe everyone!
