I just tried to get scammed from someone who calls herself Mrs Brehn and Mrs Packer She talks about a luxurious flat near the city-center in Bristol for a price surprisingly low in comparison to the market, sends you nice photos etc... and then when you want to arrange a viewing, she wants you to pay her 400 before even VISITING her flat. I just copy-paste the e-mail of proof i can pay the finances for this flat, when I asked for a viewing she was like no im not avalaible.
Thanks for the reply and the sincere interest you have in my flat. I spoke with my lawyer on phone just now concerning your stay in my flat and we both agreed to have you in my flat as long as you'll take good care of my flat as how it is. However, it is unfortunate that my past bitter experience of inviting people to come and view or reserve my flat without any form of confirmation of their financial ability and not keeping up to time as at when scheduled, has brought about great loss to me. I have traveled all the way from Ireland to take some interested candidates round my flat because that's where i work with M. Gould (Scunthorpe) Ltd.
Some outside tenants do not have the money to pay the rent and yet they disturb the the landlord to arrange a viewing with their friend or relative who are in Bristol, also some do not meet up with the appointments which has led to the dismissal of some landlords in office by their employers.
Henceforth, my lawyer and i have decided to carry out a simple test on financial ability to pay for my rent before coming for viewing. I would not ask you to send your bank statement. At least 1 Month rent and security deposit which is £ 400 which is refundable after your 2 weeks stay in my flat, would be required from you to transfer through Western union money transfer agent. You can make the transfer with your name as a sender name and your partner or friend in UK premises as a receiver.
Once you have done this, scan the receipt to me and if you do not have scanner, you may write out the details on the receipt as i will send it to my lawyer to verify if it's truly genuine and available in your friend's custody, after verification, then we can proceed for the viewing and you can as well tell your friend or partner to pick up the money and also, i will refund back to you the cost of transfer when we meet.Here is the postcode BS1 3DN - which i found out was this syndicate club and odeon cinemas lol!
