This person is a rent scammer. She is pretending to live abroad and she insists on paying in advance to secure the apartment.

Here is her Email:

Hi

Nice to hear from you!
Let me introduce myself, my name is Julie Scott, 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 ,
Julie Scott
