My real estate agent got contacted by this so called Tran Thi Kim Hoang who wanted to rent my appartment in Romania. For me, it looked quite strange from the beginning, but the agent wanted to proceed with this. Below you can find details of their e-mail exchange. After a few checks on the internet I discovered it was a scam. Please be aware!
