Posted on website to rent out common room. Claimed to be a doctor on cruise and doesn't provide information to rental conditions. Just 2 short emails and asked for PayPal link to pay 3 months rental, without viewing the room. She even emailed over a passport data page, Name, date of birth, expiry date etc. Same thing, can only email, doctor in cruise?! "

We advertise for lease rental on Gumtree. Without going thru the normal process, she was willing to pay me 6 months reng, but wanted to pay via PayPal only, and I should open a PayPal account. ....She claimed she is a doctor working in a cruise and need the receipt for custom etc etc....
