Details of Scam Report
I have been looking for rental property and received an email telling me a property I had requested info on was available. I didn't recall the property - it is an area I was looking at, huge and beautiful. VERY cheap for what it is and over Christmas/NY period - even offered a 20% discount, which is crazy for that time of year (it is summer in Australia, so beachside properties are snapped up at Christmas time, which is our long summer holiday period). Has UK phone number and gmail email address, which seemed odd. Another report on this site (scamdex) says the phone number is a timber shop in the UK... I haven't rung it.
The email seems legit because it was for a property in the right area, I was actively looking for a property to rent and it is for the right number of occupants (I have been searching for accommodation for 3). The price, inclusions, London address and gmail email address seemed 'wrong', and I don't recall seeing the property before... but I'd sent a lot of enquiries off in the last few days. Clearly they are accessing the content of these enquiries.
