Thanks for the respond, I can available by does date you mentioned only if I confirmed the proof of western union transfer earlier before the date, I don't ask you to send me Money before viewing the Flat, I have explain for you earlier that I can't avoid waste of time anymore I live and work in Bari from Bari to Milan is 8Hours drive is going to take good 16hours to come and go back and I have face two different disappointment regarding this Flat. So that is why I suggests the proof of western union kindly look for western union location to you there and let your friend or relative to make the western union to your Name you we only send me the receipt of the western union as proof as soon as I confirmed that from you I will reserve the flat for you fully since is your Name is receiver Name you are only eligible to receive the Funds so your Money is 100% safe and I will return back to you the full transfer charges either you decide to rent the flat or not on viewing Day. Thank You.

This person asks for a deposit payment via Western Union, MoneyGram or bank transfer with a promise that you can have the keys to a property that does not belong to him.

Sounds safe. It's not!

At other times, he will ask for proof that you are able to pay the deposit and rent due to a string of time wasters.
This proof is in the form of a Western Union or MoneyGram payment to a lawyer,a friend or family member.

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.

All the details such as names, addresses, pictures etc. that the scammer uses in order to back up his story, are stolen from elsewhere.

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.
