+1 Regarding Your For rent Ad   
Tran Thi Kim Hoang/ JIN FENG
Email Address:
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!

we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
