The same identical email was sent to me for an apartment in Turin, via Cernaia 36. They also sent me some pictures of the apartment which were obviously taken outside of Italy; it took me like 3 minutes to search them on Google and find out that they were taken from an ad for a house in Maastricht. This is the content of the email:

After this, they wrote me «Good to hear from you with all your details, I will be happy to have someone like you as my tenant and before i can come all the way from Stratford or secure the flat for you, i have to be sure about your willingness and financial capability in paying the move in fee on same day as I will like a situation whereby everything can be finalized on the same day i come to Torino for the viewing and handing over the keys. Therefore, if you are willing to rent and secure the flat for your date ,you will need to review the contract form, if the terms suits your requirements, you will then fill out the required field and sign, make a deposit of refundable security deposit via bank to bank transfer to ensure easy refund if you eventually decide not to take the flat after seeing it, once it is confirmed paid, thereafter we can schedule a possible time for the viewing. If there is any changes in taking the flat after viewing, you will be refunded back your deposit which you have made, upon taking the flat, the remaining fee has to be paid in cash before moving into the flat. Let me know if you are okay with the arrangements so i can email the copy of tenancy agreement for you to review.»

I got the same email about an apartment in Rotterdam.
It was immediately suspicious as the price was way below market rates, and the address provided (Weena 111) is not even an apartment but a commercial lot.
When checking the ownership details, it was not registered to an Ismail Cakir. Okay, could be a typo or maybe he doesn't yet want to give the exact address but just a neighboring one. So I checked in the database on his name. Turns out there are 3 people named Ismail Cakir in NL, but none of them own properties in Rotterdam.

Here is the email:
