Pleased to read from you and thanks for your interest. Its available for both long term and short term duration. So it suits your proposed duration and move in date. A little more about the apartment, its located inside a 17th century residence with trees and calm. I can honestly say that its among the safest and calmest area in Marais. The surface is 580 sq. feet / 55 m2 and much suitable for a maximum of 4 adults. Its on the first french floor of the building, it has an elevator as well. its fully furnished as you can see in the pictures and comes with bed linens, towels but if you wish to bring yours, no problem. Its 860 EUR per month so for your proposed duration, it will cost you 1290 EUR for the 6 weeks. All Utility bills are inclusive of the rent these include internet, gas, electricity, heating and also there is a washing machine,air conditioner, t.v cable, telephone but for national calls only, dryer, dish washer.

I am at present a teaching associate at University of Aberdeen where I will be lecturing on economics till spring 2015. Before that, I was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Institut Jean Nicod in Paris, France for 2 years as well as a professor at Catholic University of São Paulo (PUC-SP) since August 2006 Brésil and I just relocated to Aberdeen United kingdom 2 weeks ago for my new appointment and that is why i have decided to rent out the apartment.

Well, to proceed you are to pay a security deposit fee of 860 EUR which is refundable on move out date if the apartment is in order. Also you are to pay the first month rent of 860 EUR together with the deposit to make it 1720 EUR(optional to pay the 2 weeks left together with this). I must state categorically that my major concern is getting the right person to maintain the standard of my apartment and keep it clean and tidy as always.

Kindly get back to me with the following details

Full name of occupant
Address
Contact number
Will you have a car? there is actually a parking lot for one car.
Pls send a valid identification of yourself(passport or drivers license)
Just give me a brief introduction about yourself and what you do.

Do get in touch with me as soon as possible as i already received interest from someone else. The address is 8, rue Saint Paul. 75004 Paris by Saint Paul, line 1 metro which is about 5 minutes walk. let me know if its ok for you so we can proceed.

I responded to a craigslist posting advertising an apartment for rent in Paris. The scammer responded under the name "Mariana Ribeiro" and expressed interest in renting me the apartment. I discovered it was a scam after seeing a post on Scamdex that was the identical email she sent me, except under the name "Mariana Jansen".
