This is a rent scammer. She asked me to pay the agency without a contract and she is pretending to live in a different country.
She also responded me from different email addresses.

Thank you for replying,

The property is managed by Luton Homes, a local real estate agency, specialized in international transactions. Their website is: www.luton-homes.co.uk .
They will arrange a viewing for you, and handle the payments and contract.
Also if you have any questions, feel free to contact them anytime you need, because I might not always be available. You can find their details on the Contact page of their website.

Now here's how the rental works:

1. First you need to register with the agency at: www.luton-homes.co.uk/register.html by entering your details in the form and clicking SUBMIT.
2. I'll drop off 2 sets of keys and the necessary paperwork at their office
3. The agency will email you the invoice for the first rent (400€)+ Kaution (400€).
This is just to reserve the property, and not a final commitment of course.
Once you've made the payment, the agency will book the viewing for you, and within 1-2 days, one of their agents will meet you in Germany to show you the property and help you with all the formalities.
4. After the viewing, if you're satisfied with the place you will sign a contract with the agent and receive the keys so you can move in.
However if you don't like the apartment, for whatever reason, you will have no obligations and the full payment will be refunded by the agent immediately.
The whole procedure shouldn't take more than 3 days in total.

I'm paying for the services of the agency, so there will be no extra costs for you.
Also, in case you're tied up in another contract and cannot move in immediately, we can arrange the viewing now, and reserve the apartment for you.
Since we're unable to meet in person I've attached a copy of my passport, so you can have a reference of your potential landlady.

Please consider my offer and let me know if we have a deal, because there are several others interested in the apartment, and I need to make a decision soon.

Have a great day!
