concluded then i'll be able to reserve it for you till when moving in. each
room has a very bid bed that can sleep two people with a television

something concrete It's a policy that i came up with after several
disappointment from intending or interested clients which am adhering to
strictly.potential roommate we have to proof to me and to let me believe you
really need the property.I have been fooled several times after scheduling a
time to meet clients who wants to view the apartment and at the end of the
day they tell me they want to stay in the apartment for some period of time
before they would pay me or not even showing up at meeting place for
viewing. I don't want this to happen to me again.so if you're really

This person asks that you are able to pay the deposit and rent to secure the property.
This payment is in the form of a bank transfer, Western Union or MoneyGram payment either to him or his lawyer.

Sounds safe. It's not!

At other times, this person asks for a deposit payment via bank transfer, Western Union or Moneygram with the promise that they will send the keys through a courier company.

In either case, if payment is made and you give this person the details, they will collect the money.
You will not hear from them again.

If you are reading this because you are looking for property to rent, and you are in contact with this thief you are probably searching Craigslist, Gumtree or similar listing sites. If you receive any requests from 'Landlords' asking for some kind of payment before viewing, then it will also be a scam. Please forward the mail to me at the address in my signature line and I will investigate and list them if necessary.

Attached to the mail is the official lease agreement form which i'll advice you go through properly.once you're okay with the terms and conditions which am sure of then you're to proceed to the payment to the below bank account details.

Beneficiary Name:Cindy Delafoy
Bank Name: Barclays Bank
IBAN: GB80BARC20829420505412
Sort Code: 20-82-94
Account Number: 20505412
Bank SWIFT/BIC Code: BARCGB22

You're to get back to me with a scanned copy of the transfer receipt once you get through with the payment.Immediately i confirm the payment then i'll send you the signed rental agreement form along with payment receipt which indicate we're in contract and you're to bring it along with you when coming for moving in.Thanks while waiting to read from you and don't hesitate to ask if you have more question.
Regards,
Cindy
