Thank you for your quick reply.
As I said in my previous email, I live in Madrid and will have to come and show you the apartment and sign the rental agreement.
After moving to Madrid, we started renting the apartment through Airbnb ( but it has been quite a hard time for me to come often and check everything, so I decided to rent the apartment for long terms. Airbnb provides an online platform that connects hosts who have accommodations to rent with guests seeking to rent such accommodations. I am Airbnb member since 2015 with good reviews.
Like any other transactions on Airbnb, they will handle payment and it will be released to me only after you check in. By any chance the flat would not suit you, you have the option to cancel the reservation and Airbnb will refund your payment.
After you confirm the booking and payment to Airbnb, I will come to show you the apartment and sign the rental agreement. I use Airbnb because the owner of the property is covered by Airbnb policies. There will be a regular contract between us. You will have a completed residence registration form, signed by me. The registration at the address is possible. As for me, you can rest assured that I will never ask you to leave the apartment. You can rent the apartment as long as you want and move anytime. We have moved permanently to Spain.

If you agree with Airbnb I will enable the apartment again on Airbnb so you can book it.
I will need your full name, your actual address, phone number, the date you want to move in and the maximum estimated period of your staying.

Best regards,

This Scammer will arrange to send you an Invoice or notification -- Make no mistake, the document will be fake !
If you are reading this because you have received such an invoice or notification, kindly forward it to the address in my signature line and I will report the details to the appropriate authorities.
