| Paris Marais - lovely apartment SCAM|
The scammer lists the apartment on www.airbnb.com and will act like a legitimate landlord. He even sends a legitimate passport copy and electric bill.
However, when you reserve the apartment, he will try to get you to sign the lease and give him the deposit and 1st month rent. In return he says he will send you the keys for the apartment.
He seems almost believable and offers a real UK phone number so you can talk to him, but he is too eager and the apartment pictures are obviously stolen, and the price is too good.
